The latest class of Mounted officers graduated from their 15-week training, proving they are ready to saddle up to police the city. The officers showed off their skills in a 23-minute Musical Ride demonstrating teamwork and precision between officers as well as their sturdy police mounts. Mounted officers patrol the city, participate in police-community events and are used in crowd control scenarios daily throughout the city.
