The Oregon State Police Honor Guard was first officially established police honor guard in Oregon in 1984. Funeral and memorial services remain the core function of the team to this day. The team also acts as the official ceremonial unit of the Superintendent of State Police and the Governor of Oregon. They are used in various capacities including color presentations, ambassadors at gubernatorial inaugurations, to security at formal state events. Members also represent the Governor and Superintendent at various police funerals and memorials across the United States. Honor guard members represent each Division of the State Police and are located in worksites across Oregon.
The honor guard has provided services in conjunction with other police services, all branches of the military, the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and various private and civic organizations such as the Elks and the Freemasons. The team has conducted all manner of services from full honors multi-agency services to a single honor guard member presenting a flag.
