PATROL


     In 2012, the mounted patrol was reestablished. It is made up of a team of officers from various law enforcement agencies throughout Delaware County.

The Officers must complete a Competency Challenge before moving forward with the course.

The course curriculum included:

  •  Basic Formation

  •  Tactical Formation

  •  Crowd Control

  •  Sensory and Obstacle Training

  •  Patrol Techniques and Department Procedures

  •  Search and Rescue

  •  Press, Public, and Community Relations

  •  Horse Abuse Laws for New York State

     Sheriff Craig DuMond supervises the Mounted Patrol at their appearances throughout Delaware County. The Sheriff’s Mounted Patrol participates in civic events throughout the year.

     “The use of horses in police work is just as relevant today as it was in 1797 when the Sheriff’s Office was established. Working and searching in Delaware County can be difficult and at times, especially in areas not accessible by conventional methods and the horse is the perfect alternative. Being 8-10 feet in the air gives the officer a perfect vantage point to operate in a wide variety of scenarios. Additionally, we plan to utilize this detail as a means of community relations and appear at various parades, festivals and fairs. The horse makes the officer more approachable to the public in general and helps build the bridge toward effective community relations.”
