Honor Guard

The Charlotte–Mecklenburg Police Department's Honor Guard Unit is a volunteer resource designed to professionally represent the department at fallen officer funerals, retired officer funerals, memorial and promotion ceremonies and any event designed to present the American Flag.




Twenty-five (25) officers serve as members of the Honor Guard. Deputy Chief Jeffrey Estes is the Unit Commander and has overall command authority in all matters pertaining to the internal organization of the unit. There are two Honor Guard supervisors, Captain Cecil Brisbon and  Captain Jacquelyn Hulsey.


The CMPD Honor Guard is an active unit that averages 20-40 events yearly.  On May 13, 2007 the Honor Guard led the procession of officers and family members from the police memorial on

Trade Street
to the memorial service at First Baptist Church.  The CMPD Honor Guard was supplemented with officers from the Huntersville Police Department and the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office.
