It is the mission of the Berks County Jail System Honor Guard to represent the Berks County Jail System in providing honor to a deceased employee or retiree at the request of the deceased's family, and to provide comfort and compassion for the survivors. The Honor Guard also provides honors to staff during awards, graduations, and memorial services, thereby building unit cohesion and espirit de corps.
Members of the Honor Guard shall hold themselves to the highest degree of integrity, loyalty, and honor to the Berks County Jail System and the Corrections profession in general. Importantly, only those with a high degree of pride and a willingness to give should invest in the time to become an Honor Guard member.
There is no higher honor than honoring one of our own.
