November 2017

Join the BLVE on Saturday, November 4, as we tour the KCPD Mounted Patrol Section in Swope Park. The Mounted Patrol Section is a valuable asset to the community for crowd control, the horse and rider’s overall size and height combining to make them a formidable force in large crowd situations. One mounted patrol officer is equivalent to 8-10 officers on foot. The Mounted Patrol Section consists of eight officers, one sergeant and nine horses, and tours are free.
