About the Event
The National Honor Guard Exhibition and Tribute provides an opportunity for law enforcement organizations to perform ceremonious and patriotic tributes for public viewing. These teams are a highly dedicated group of law enforcement officers that represent organizations from all across this nation and Canada. They converge on the Nation’s Capital every year for National Police Week, where peace officers are honored for their dedicated service to the protection of our communities. The day of May 15th is known as
National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day, a day when the nation honors those officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. This event is the tribute these teams give to honor our fallen officers and their families.
In the past few years, we have added pipe bands to the event. They participate much like the honor guards where they too perform heartfelt tributes to our fallen officers.

Overview of the Honor Guard  Event

1. TEAM INSPECTION DRILL: The team leader shall present the team for judging at the Inspection Line. The team shall come to “Attention", then remain at attention until dismissed.  When the Team Leader is satisfied that his team is ready, he shall take his position in front of the team and inform the judge that the team is ready for inspection.  The Leader will then be inspected for neatness, cleanliness, and military bearing.  The remaining team members will then be inspected for conformity to the leader’s uniform.  

2. COLOR GUARD – When the inspection portion for each team is
completed, the flags will be brought to the flag bearer/s.  Not all team members are required to Post Colors but all team members must participate.   Judging begins in this event when the judge instructs the leader to begin. Each team will immediately begin the “Posting of the Colors.”  Each team will post a minimum of two colors

3.  EXHIBITION PHASE. This phase will consist of a performance that all team members must participate in. The performance must last no more than Eight (8) minutes and teams that go over the time limit will receive demerits however, teams using less than 8 minutes will not be
penalized. The event time will begin once the team’s leader has his team assembled and gives an audible command to the judge that the team is ready.
