The Atlanta Police Department Mounted Patrol Unit serves as part of the Special Operations Section supporting the Field Operations Division with crime deterrence and crowd control. Mounted Patrol works over 100 events each year including some of Atlanta’s largest festivals, parades, Atlanta United matches and Falcons games. On a daily basis they patrol different areas of the city, focusing on areas that benefit the most from horse patrolling. They are always a crowd favorite!
Fun fact: Each Mounted Patrol horse is a sworn Atlanta Police Department officer. They even have their own badge as a part of their official dress code.
