Honor Tree

Honor those who protect and serve this holiday season with a special tribute to fallen officers. First created by Troop 218 in Overland Park, KS, Scouts came up with the idea to honor fallen police officers with a special tree at the Johnson County Sheriff's Department. Every ornament on the tree bears the names of officers who made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting their communities.

Create Your Own Honor Tree

Create an Honor Tree in the headquarters of your local law enforcement agency as a tribute to fallen officers. The process is not only rewarding, but will help build a relationship between your Scouting unit and community law enforcement agency.

  • Funds are available to assist in creating your unit's Honor Tree
  • Plan includes customizable Honor Tree templates for your unit
