Westland police sell challenge coins for trip to honor fallen officers

The Westland Police Department Honor Guard wants to represent their city during the 2023 National Police Week in Washington, DC

Members are selling new $20 Honor Guard Challenge Coins to raise the approximately $15,000 needed so they can honor fallen officers and their families in various ways, including a candlelight vigil on the National Mall and memorial service at the US Capitol.

“It’s something that the city can be proud to be a part of,” Sgt. Joseph Reardon, team leader for the police department’s honor guard, said. “Just being there and having our patch — specifically for the City of Westland — being represented and our team there and conversing with politicians from all across the country and letting them know what we represent. We’re proud to represent the community.”
