The Indianapolis officers that are part of the IMPD Mounted Patrol Unit come from varied backgrounds and locales, but all share a common respect and admiration for Indianapolis, its residents, and serving the greater good. Mounted Patrol Unit officers are highly trained, highly skilled, and full sworn police officers of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
In the saddle, officers rely on their horses. Police horses are primarily draft horses crossed with a smaller horse. The result is a horse that’s nimble and small enough to navigate city streets and large enough to handle everything that comes with being on the force.
