Mounted Patrol

Synergy is created throughout the community when horses and police officers come together, enhancing public safety. They help diversify policing strategies by helping with crowd control, enhancing visibility, and accessibility during searches. Your Foundation funds provide training, equipment, and help underwrite the care of the horses.

The purpose of the Evansville Police Department Mounted Patrol Program is to enhance public safety and to build bonds of trust between the community and the Evansville Police Department. The goal of this book is to introduce children to the Evansville Mounted Patrol horses, Blondie & Speck. An interactive book format was chosen to encourage active participation, discussion, and reading together. This work is sponsored by a Toyota grant and other generous donors. We hope you enjoy learning about the Evansville Police Department’s Mounted Patrol Program. Make sure to look for the mounted patrol horses around our community!
