Seven Officers to Graduate From Worcester Police Mounted Patrol Unit Tuesday

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

 

Seven Worcester Police officers are set to graduate from the Worcester Police Mounted Patrol Unit following a 10-week training session conducted by the Massachusetts State Police. 

The Ceremony 

The ceremony will take place on Thursday, February 21 at 11 a.m. inside the training arena at the state police barn in action. The barn is located at 50 Wetherbee St. in Acton, Massachusetts. It was originally scheduled for February 9, but moved due to weather. 

Massachusetts State Police Sgt. John Linquata and Worcester Police Lt. Joseph Ashe will provide opening remarks as well as an introduction to the Mounted Patrol Unit. 

City Manager Edward M. Augustus, Jr. and Chief Steven M. Sargent will also address the class during the ceremony.

Following the graduation, the officers will provide a demonstration of their training exercises. 

The Training 

The training consisted of a combination of classroom study, basic equitation, along with exercises providing officers with the skills necessary to perform the duties of a mounted patrol officer on horseback. 

It will take a few more months for the officers to hone their riding skills and prepare their horses before patrolling in the city. 

The officers expect to receive their first patrolling assignments during the summer months.
