To honor fallen peace officers, killed in the line of duty, dozens of law enforcement agencies gather in Sacramento. Every year, mounted patrols also take part in the memorial services. This year, four officers from Inyo-Mono joined the ceremonies.
According to the Mono County Sheriff's Department, these officers took part:
Investigator Craid Oyster and his mount Norco from the Inyo County Sheriff's Department, Sgt. Marc Moscowitz and his mount Flammable and Officer Andy Lehr with his mount Easy, both from the Mammoth Lakes Police Department and Sgt. Phil West and his mount Abby from the Mono County Sheriff's Department.
This year there were 80 mounts and riders at the Sacramento ceremony. The Sacramento Police Department's Mounted Unit hosted a boarding facility for all the mounts from around California. The mounted officers were major crowd pleasers and turned up in countless photos.
