Mounted Unit

The LAPD Mounted Unit serves an important and highly visible role out in the field in areas of mass demonstration management, crowd control, crime suppression, and law enforcement at public parks, sports and entertainment complexes and beaches. They also assist in search and rescue missions in dense and mountainous areas around the city. Housed in a state-of-the-art, multi-acre, police equestrian center, the Mounted Unit is expertly trained, well-skilled, and fully equipped with a fleet of trucks and trailers to transport officers and their horses wherever they are needed.
