WHY
is a Mounted Police Unit an Indispensable Asset?

...Community Policing...

Horses dissolve barriers, and increase personal contact.

...High Visibility...

Minimizes criminal activity and increases citizen's
sense of safety by creating a positive police presence.

...Searches...

Horses have frequently shown a higher success rate
than dogs and air support when searching for
missing persons, fugitives, and evidence.

...Security...

A very mobile presence following
civil disturbances and natural disasters.

...Goodwill...

People love to see Mounted Police
on their streets and often stop and talk to them.
