The Mounted Section plays 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.

Thames Valley Police currently has nine horses in its Mounted Section.

Anthony Stansfeld said: "I was very impressed with what I saw when I visited the Mounted Section of Thames Valley Police. They are fulfilling an important and vital role, and I am delighted to support this as part of Thames Valley policing."
