​Would you be surprised to see police officers patrolling your neighborhood on horses? Actually, horses have been used in police work for many years. Today, Police Mounted Units have become an important component in law enforcement throughout the United States, not only in rural areas, but in urban settings as well. Their effectiveness in crowd control is unequaled. Their high visibility makes them a deterrent to crime. Their participation in parades and other community events, as well as their presence in our neighborhoods, make them invaluable in boosting positive relations with the community, especially with the children.

The private security industry is also recognizing those values in providing private protection where traditional security measures might be less effective or impractical.
