The Richmond Police


Mounted Squad A welcome, well-turned-out presence on the city’s streets


BY DUTCH HENRY | PHOTOS BY KAREN LINDLEY


MOUNTED patrols do so much in so many cities, towns and neigh- borhoods across the US to help enrich lives. T ey have in common a unique ability to provide assistance in search and rescue, crowd control and routine patrols in neighborhoods, and are wonderful ambassadors of good will. T ey also have in common the never-ending challenge to secure adequate funding. Sadly, these wonderful organizations’ numbers are dwindling due to budget issues in many cities and towns. In fact, a huge portion of funding for many mounted patrols is oſt en through donations, and many offi cers pay their own way for trucks or trailers, stabling, feed and veterinary expenses. Many ride their own horses.
