The Rexburg Police Department Honor Guard was established in May of 2010 by a group of dedicated officers who wished to form a unit to represent the Police Department during ceremonies in the community and to exhibit the utmost respect for those that have died in the service of others. Under the direction of Chief Lynn Archibald the officers worked to put the Honor Guard together. The Rexburg Police Department Honor Guard was founded to serve as the ceremonial arm of the Rexburg Police Department.
