The Pembroke Pines Police Honor Guard is composed of volunteer officers from within the agency who represent the department during prestigious and ceremonial events.   Honor Guard is designed to provide the department with a well-trained ceremonial unit to render honors, preserve tradition, stimulate esprit de corps, and instill pride.
