Honor Guard - Harris County Sheriff's Office The Honor Guard was established in 1977 and continues to uphold the proud tradition of service with the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

It now includes an es**rt of honor representing the Sheriff’s Office at funeral services for sworn peace officers from other agencies. The Honor Guard provides Sheriff’s Office representation at funerals for retired and active duty personnel who decease by natural causes, and makes appearances at parades and other public

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that DPS announces the passing of Trooper Chad Walker. Trooper Walker is a hero who bravely served his community. He died following injuries sustained while on patrol.

A beloved father and husband, Trooper Walker was one of DPS’ finest. His dedication to duty and his selfless sacrifice, in both life and his death, will never be forgotten.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of a Detention Officer from complications of COVID-19. Our hearts, prayers, and condolences go out to his grieving family, loved ones, and colleagues.

The Detention Officer, a man in his mid-50s, was a military veteran who served in the Harris County Jail for 5 years. The release of his name is pending notification of his family. He died on Wednesday, Feb. 3.

He is the third Sheriff’s Office correctional staff member -- and the fourth employee agency-wide -- to die after contracting COVID-19.

“Our teammate will be missed by all of us who had the honor of working with and knowing him,” said Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. “We’re grateful for his selfless commitment to be on the front lines of ensuring the safety and well-being of everyone in the county jail – including his fellow detention officers, medical personnel, jail support staff, and those entrusted in our custody.”

Funeral arrangements are pending. Release: http://bit.ly/3txK5vK.

The 20-year department veteran was fatally struck on his way home by a vehicle in Pearland near FM 2234 and Kingsley Drive. He had just finished an off-duty job leading a funeral procession.

The first ever Harris County Peace Officers' Memorial Garden is being erected on the grounds belonging to Crime Stoppers, located at 3001 Main in downtown Houston. It is expected to be completed by Wednesday, May 10, 2017, just in time for the Annual Harris County Peace Officers' Memorial at 7p. Our fallen survivors will be invited to take part in our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. If you are a survivor or if you know a survivor, please encourage them to come and participate in this very historical event! It is going to be a place of honor and a place we can all be proud of. We will finally have a place to show our respect for those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. Gone, but not forgotten. "Lest We Forget" "Nemo Me Impune Lacessit" No one assails me with impunity!
