The York County Sheriff's Office Honor Guard was first started in 2002. Presently there are 12 members of the Honor Guard, and they perform many functions. Some past details have been honoring fallen members of the Law Enforcement Community, Fire Community, and Public Officials. They have also presented the National, State, and Local Colors at opening ceremonies, marched in parades, and provided many other functions.
Annually they also attend the National Police Memorial Week in Washington D.C. to honor all fallen Law Enforcement Officers.
This includes a member of The York County Sheriff's Office, Deputy Sheriff Edward "Skip" Schroeder, Jr, who was added to the Memorial in 2006 after falling in the line of duty.
Since it's inception, the Honor Guard has had the honor to serve at over 100 functions.
