In the year 2000 under the order of Chief Ramsey the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police reinstated their Mounted Unit.  Seventy years after being disolved, the M.P.D. began patrolling the streets of Washington D.C. once again.

Go to the right for a block and go right, stop cross over and take your second right. After that go about two blocks to the right then hook a right. Or you can turn around and go in that door right there - don't you just love tourists :)
The Washington D.C. Mounted Unit may be small, but they are out there actively patrolling the streets of the district. After the officer completes around 10 weeks of basic horse riding and horse care they hit the streets. Currently there are seven officers and one Sergeant with four horses. The unit works both day and night depending on the cities need.
