The honor guard was formed by Sheriff Dale B. Furr in January of 2008. An honor guard is a ceremonial unit composed of volunteers who are carefully screened for their physical ability and dexterity. Only those persons who are highly motivated and maintain exceptionally high standards of appearance and conduct and show aptitude for ceremonial duty are likely to be considered. The purpose of the Honor Guard is to represent the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office in an effort to show respect, gratitude, pride and integrity as a public service of the community.The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office currently uses the Honor Guard for special assignments such as funerals, parades, memorials, and special ceremonies. The Honor Guard is lead by Sergeant John Edwards. Members include Lieutenant Mike Burns, Sergeant Jay Childers, Sergeant Terri Childers, Deputy Warren Strong, Deputy Travis Bohman, Deputy Prentice Dawkins, Deputy Bryan Cloninger, Deputy Dan McInnis, and Deputy Bryan Beach. Sheriff Dale Furr and the Honor Guard would like to thank you for your support.
