Fun Fact

Mounted police units are not a new concept and are used in various countries around the world. These units often perform crowd control, patrol parks and beaches, and assist in search and rescue operations. They have been found to be effective in urban environments due to their height advantage, which allows them to see above crowds, as well as their ability to cover ground more quickly than foot patrols.
