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.
