The Neenah Police Department Honor Guard provides the department with a specialized ceremonial team who volunteer to represent the Department during functions such as parades, official ceremonies, and funerals for law enforcement officers. Members of the Honor Guard possess special skills and knowledge to preserve tradition and properly honor and pay tribute to “those who went before.” Many hours of training are necessary to prepare for the varied events the Honor Guard participates in.
The Neenah Police Department Honor Guard formally participates in opening ceremonies for many functions, attends funerals around the state, and attends the Police Week Law Enforcement Memorial Celebration in Madison, Wisconsin, and Washington, D.C. Additionally, our Neenah Police Quartet often sings the national anthem at Wisconsin Timber Rattlers games and Milwaukee Brewers games while the Honor Guard assists in presenting the colors at these games.
Neenah Quartet members: Lieutenant Kathy Voelker, Lieutenant Pat Pedersen, Officer Austin Riska, and Officer Erik Douglas
Neenah Honor Guard members: Sergeant Vicki Strebel (Team Leader), Lieutenant Pat Pedersen, Officer Erik Douglas, Investigator Paige Collins, Officer Tony Edwards, SRO Rob Ross, and Officer Brad Barnard
