The Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Thames Valley was invited to meet the latest recruit of Thames Valley Police’s Mounted Section earlier this week (8/10).
Police Horse Viktor is the Mounted Section’s latest addition to the team. The Mounted Section play an important role in public order by attending planned and spontaneous public disorder. This can include policing football matches and helping to maintain public order at demonstrations, marches and events.
With the latest addition, Thames Valley Police now have 7 horses in its Mounted Section.
Matthew Barber, Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley, said: “It was a pleasure to be invited to meet the latest recruit for Thames Valley Police’s Mounted Section earlier this week. I was very impressed with the work taking place during my visit.
“Police Horse Viktor joins an important part of the policing family and will continue to ensure that our communities are kept safe and protected.”
