A traditional police funeral with honor guards, a fly over and final radio call will honor veteran lawman Clint Greenwood, who was gunned down Monday as he arrived at work.

Thousands of law enforcement officers from across the Houston area are expected to join Greenwood’s family and friends at a service starting at 11 a.m. Thursday at Second Baptist Church at 6400 Woodway Dr.

Greenwood, who joined the Harris County Precinct 3 Constable’s Office in January, had spent his career working with cops – as a prosecutor, as a Precinct 4 reserve deputy constable, as a high-level officer in the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and as a defense attorney who represented police officers accused of wrongdoing.

His killer remains at large, even as dozens of officers from multiple agencies work through leads and evidence.

His funeral will be held in the same church that served as host after the 2015 ambush killing of Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth.

For Greenwood’s service, the church has prepared its 3,000-person main sanctuary as well as overflow areas. Deputies and reserve deputies will man the Precinct 3 office so that those officers and others may attend the funeral.

Stay tuned for coverage of the funeral service.
