The Omaha Police Department welcomed two new horses to their Mounted Patrol today.
Blue and Valor will soon take to the streets.
OPD Sergeant Joe Svacina said, “By June, both horses will be on the streets with their riders. Valor will be on our Mid-Shift detail where he will be working the bar crowd in the riverfront district. Blue will be on a D-Shift detail where he’ll be doing daytime patrols.”
Blue and Valor will now complete the training process before they are official police officers.
Both horses were purchased with donations provided by Woodmen Life.
