Salute to First Responders: Mounted police officers


Did you notice all the mounted police officers this year during Mardi Gras? Mobile only has eight of them, but there were dozens patrolling our streets.

This time of the year they come from all over the country to learn their craft from some of the best.

Mardi Gras has been the perfect training ground for these mounted units. Mobile has been hosting this training academy since 1993.
