Honor Guard - Information



 Honor Guard 



The Cleveland County Sheriff's Office Color Guard currently has 14 members serving in the Guard.  It is under the command of Captain Phyllis Sims.  Lieutenant Durwin Briscoe serves as the Director.

The Sheriff's Office Color Guard has been invited to participate in the opening ceremonies at the Carolina Panthers vs. St. Louis Rams game on November 19, 2006.  The Color Guard will be presenting the Colors during the National Anthem just before the game.  The Panthers invite Color Guards from across the state after an application process and a review from the Entertainment Producer for the Carolina Panthers.  

Lieutenant Briscoe states that "it is an honor to be invited by the Panthers to participate in presenting the Colors for so many people at one time."  He also would like to dedicate the ceremony to all who have served our country in the past and present, and to those who have families overseas at this time.  The members participating in the ceremony are Lieutenant Briscoe, Sgt. Shane Ledbetter, Corporal Micah Sturgis, Paul Leigh, John Humphries, and John Stearns.

 The Sheriff's Office Guard practices on a monthly basis for various types of ceremonies.  Military precision in marching, presenting and posting the Colors, and burial detail are a few of the duties that are practiced.  

The Sheriff is very proud of the Sheriff's Office Guard, and for what the Guard stands for.  He has always received outstanding reviews and comments from those who have seen the Guard in parades and other functions.   


The Sheriff's Office Honor Guard is available for families of military veterans and law enforcement for various functions.  The public can contact Lieutenant Briscoe at the Sheriff's Office if you would like to request the Guard's services.  The contact number is 704-484-4888; or the Cleveland County website at http://www.sheriffclevelandcounty.com You may contact Lt. Briscoe directly at durwin.briscoe@clevelandcounty.com
