Mounted Police supports Neighbourhood Policing Team

Saturday, August 1st, 2020

Our Neighbourhood Policing team enjoyed some heavyweight support on Tuesday 21st July.

Sergeant Darren Walsh, of the Amersham team, explained: “Due to a number of events being cancelled due to Covid-19, I have been able to take advantage and get some targeted mounted patrols in areas that have been reporting various ASB and crime issues.

The Mounted units are a useful tool and can be used for:

  • Public Order and Public Safety events.
  • Night time economy high visibility patrols
  • Rural crime patrols
  • Licensed Search
  • High Visibility patrol in-line with local tasking
  • Horsewatch and British Horse Society liaison
  • Ceremonial and escort protection duties

I will be seeing if we can further utilise this resource for the benefit of our community.”
