EPD Mounted Patrol

Police Horses are not only popular with the public and especially children, but they are also useful in a variety of situations. Policing on horseback provides the flexibility to patrol areas that vehicles cannot easily reach, such as green ways, parks and other pedestrian areas. The height advantage for the officers while sitting atop the horse allow riders to easily observe crowd activities or look over walls and fences, areas that would go unnoticed by officers on foot or in patrol vehicles.

The EPD Mounted Patrol is currently not included in the department’s budget. The horses are funded through generous donations and contributions sent to the Evansville Police Foundation. Therefore, we look to the community for sponsorship and support.  Your donations are greatly appreciated.

    Specialized training is critical to EPD in order to keep up with current trends in crime as well as learning new methods used by law enforcement.  As our general fund has a limited training budget, the Foundation will make it possible for officers to take advantage of specialized training as it becomes available.

    Emergency Fund

The Evansville Police Foundation would like to thank the following for their sponsorship and generosity:
