Mounted Police, Richmond
Richmond is one of very few American cities that still has a mounted police unit. Oftentimes, they assign mounted police to cover large gatherings. Lee, Christian, and I saw two officers on horseback in Shockoe Bottom in September, 2006. The police department treats the horses like fellow officers, taking care of them from the time they are acquired past their retirement at a uniform age.
