The Westport Police Honor Guard is a ceremonial police unit that was formed in 1998 to honor the values, dedication, and traditions of the men and women of law enforcement. Officers of the Honor Guard represent the Town of Westport and its Police Department locally and across the region. The Westport Police Honor Guard honors all fallen officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
In 2005 the Westport Police Honor Guard traveled to Washington, DC in honor of Auxiliary Officer Aldo Santini, the first fallen Westport officer to be memorialized on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
The Honor Guard participates annually in Memorial Day and Veteran's Day ceremonies honoring those who have served and died for our country, and regularly joins with their colleagues in the Fire Department Honor Guard at various Town functions such as inaugural events.
