Funeral Escort Service

The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office provides funeral escort services at a charge of $200 per funeral. The funeral escorts are provided by off-duty deputies when possible. A 48-hour notice is requested so that staff can prepare. Two deputies and vehicles are always provided.

For questions or comments about an escort, you may email funeralescort@mecklenburgcountync.gov. You may also contact Sgt. R. Goodwin at (980) 314-5919 (office).
