Newest addition to LMPD's Mounted Patrol arrives
Meet Churchill: the newest member of the Louisville Metro Police Department's Mounted Patrol.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The newest addition to LMPD's Mounted Patrol has arrived just in time for the holidays.
The Louisville Metro Police Foundation posted pictures of Churchill, the horse, on Facebook Friday. He was donated to the Mounted Patrol by the Churchill Downs Foundation.
The foundation asked for the community's help in naming the horse through an online contest.
LMPD's Mounted Patrol horses are trained in crowd control, and are often seen at Thunder over Louisville and the Kentucky Derby.
