The purpose of the Placer County Sheriff’s Mounted Enforcement Unit is to provide specialized law enforcement patrol duties of crowd and riot control, security for special events, and to promote positive public relations by participating in community programs. At our strongest, we had 12 members. These members created the “Ride with Pride” program, a great community outreach, which celebrated its 26th anniversary in 2019. This is the longest-running program within the Placer County Sheriff’s Office.
Areas of deployment for the mounted unit:
Public relations, community events, kid’s events, special events
