Clarksville Axes Mounted Patrol
By Chris Taylor
Clarksville, TN – The Police Department in Clarksville, Tennessee is discontinuing its mounted patrol. Officers have ridden the horses during holiday and special events for the past decade. No official reasoning behind the cut has been declared and details of when the horses will end their service and what will become of them are still unclear. The Clarksville Leaf Chronicle hints the move may be financially motivated. It costs the department around $15,000 to saddle up a new horse and the mounted patrol has, in the past, relied on fundraising to support the program.
