Broken Arrow Mounted Patrol busy training for spring events

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. — Broken Arrow’s newly formed Mounted Patrol Unit has been busy training for upcoming community events, the Broken Arrow Police Department said.

The horses were even donated gear from the BA Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association.

When the horses are deployed, they will be commissioned as on-duty reserve officers. When not on duty, each horse is under the care of its police officer partner. Each member of the MPU is set to complete training with a CLEET-certified instructor.

The MPU is expected to be available in the spring of 2023.
