Friends of the Manchester Mounted Patrol at a Glance
A Bit of Background
The horses and riders of the Mounted Patrol, focuses their patrols in the downtown area of Manchester and the parks. The horses are an excellent way to interact with the public, as an approachable police presence.
The Mounted Patrol is another form of transportation, for the officers, allowing them to access to places a cruiser may not be able to go. The Mounted Patrol maintains the functions of Police Officers, making car stops, writing summonses, or making arrests.
