St. Paul Mounted Police Foundation

The St. Paul Mounted Police Foundation is very saddened by the determination by senior command of the St. Paul Police Department to terminate the Mounted Police and the Motorcycle Police Units.  While we believe both have been of great service to the community and assisted in building better relations between the SPPD and the community and thus question the determination, the volunteer members of the Foundation recognize it is within the prerogative of senior command to make the choices related to the allocation of the SPPD resources.

Since the announcement by the SPPD of the terminations, the Foundation has received numerous inquiries regarding the disposition of the horses and other equipment.  Those are determinations to be made by the SPPD.

We believe the SPPD intends to follow past practices of making offers to return horses being retired from service to the parties that donated them.  If so, that would account for the three newest horses.  As to the other two horses, we await announcement as to their disposition, but have been assured the SPPD will be seeking to find appropriate new owners for those two horses.
