Police Horses

From the Series We Work! Animals with Jobs

Once, horses were a mainstay of police departments. With the advent of cars, however, the number of horses employed slowly declined. However, horses still offer a real advantage over cars in certain situations. For example, they are great in dense crowds because they elevate the officers above the crowd, making it easier for them to see what's going on. Horses can also maneuver through crowds much more easily than cars. In this introduction to the work horses do in law enforcement, readers will learn exactly what kinds of jobs horses are right for, how they are trained, and the equipment they need. The bright pictures and fascinating text are sure to engage emergent readers and give them a deep respect for the work these animals do.
