The events immediately following the untimely passing of a law enforcement officer are often chaotic. The WHGA can help temper this chaos by providing your agency with WHGA representatives from across the State of Wisconsin, capable of assisting with the preparation and coordination of associated protocols and honors. *There is no cost for this service*
Our board has tirelessly researched, discussed, and evaluated national honor guard protocols in order to develop best practice recommendations and training regimens that are suitable for agencies with and without trained honor guard teams.
The WHGA is divided into six geographical regions, each of these regions are led by one or moreWHGA representative(s) who can help coordinate training sessions and provide assistance withpolicy development.
In addition, the WHGA offers on-site training of your agency’s personnel in honor guard protocols such as:
· Color Guard · Flag Folding and Presentation · Casket Watch & Movement · Rifle Salute · Parade Movement
