The mounted patrol horse unit was disbanded this spring, the Winnipeg Police Service confirmed Friday. The two- horse unit, which had been operating for the past 17 years, was shut down to save money, spokesman Const. Eric Hofley said. “ We’re in a time of fiscal restraint,” he said. “ With limited resources, decisions have to be made.” The move is expected to save the police service between $ 20,000 to $ 25,000 per year — money it would have spent on sheltering, feeding and caring for the horses. The police service has decided instead to focus on its schoolresource program, and officers who worked with the horses will be moved there. The horses, Titus and Amaro, were sold to a retired police officer who had worked in the mounted patrol unit, which Hofley said is a “ win- win” for the police service because it knows the horses will be cared for properly. Hofley noted the horses had delighted adults and children alike during their time on patrol. “ The mounted patrol was a well- loved unit,” he said. But there may not have been as much public involvement in the mounted patrol as police would have liked. Police board chairman Coun. Scott Gillingham said the board and the police service had several discussions about scrapping the horse unit so more officers would be free to work with schools as part of the community relations unit. There seemed to be “ a waning public interest” in the mounted patrol, Gillingham said, and much of the officers’ time during their daily shifts was spent tending to horses for the seasonal patrol. The mounted police and their horses were a common summer sight at The Forks, where they will be missed, said Kristin Pauls, marketing and communications co- ordinator. “ People definitely loved interacting with the police and the horses at The Forks,” she said. But she added the horses were just one sign of police presence in the area, including the continuing bike patrol. katie. may@ freepress. mb. ca winnipegfreepress. com Police horse unit disbands Money saved to be spent on school resources By Katie May TREVOR HAGAN / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS FILES Const.
