New Orleans. Born and Bred.
New Orleans, more than any other city in America, relies on its Mounted Unit for visibility, crowd control, deterring crime and community policing. The first sight of a Mounted Officer is one many visitors to Bourbon Street will remember forever. To keep this valuable asset to our city moving forward, We need your help. The Angola Penitentiary once provided more than 75% of the horses used by the New Orleans Mounted Patrol, but that program has closed, denying the NOPD its only true source of quality police horses. So, the New Orleans Mounted Unit has started its own breeding program, ensuring a continuing self maintained source of police horses. And that's where you come in. In order to keep these beautiful foals, we need the support of our community.
