We would love for the Weld County community to join us!


The Greeley Police Department Honor Guard will be doing a ceremonial lowering of the flags, and the Weld County Sheriff’s OfficeGroup Honor Guard will be doing a 21 gun salute and taps. There will be guest speakers such as Sheriff Steve Reams, Chief Jerry Garner and District Attorney Michael Rourke and Command staff from different agencies in Weld County will read of all the names of law enforcement personnel who died in the line of duty in 2016.


After the ceremony there will be food and refreshments as we enjoy an opportunity to interact with the community that supports us every day.


We hope to see you there!
