...and still going strong.
When a well-known Cleveland Police Captain was asked why officers on horseback were interacting with residents, he was quick to respond, “The Cleveland Police understand the importance of community policing. The Mounted Police Unit leads the way as a symbol of connecting the Cleveland Police Division with the community. It is its number one goal.”
CLEVELAND MOUNTED POLICE CHARITABLE TRUST
Between 2003 and 2012, the Mounted Police Unit was on the verge of being eliminated. It was only through the support of the Committee to Save the Mounted Police, the formation of the Cleveland Mounted Police Charitable Trust, and private donations that the unit has been able to survive. Now, with the City of Cleveland on good financial footing, public and private supporters are committed to a continued renaissance for the Mounted Unit. Your donation will help!
