Formed in 1886, Merseyside Police Mounted Section is the oldest of its kind. Today, it’s an integral part of the Operational Support Unit, based at Greenhill Road, Allerton. We’re proud to still stand tall after all this time. And with continued support, we hope to do so for many more years to come.
Our main duties include policing large-scale events within Merseyside, such as the Grand National, Liverpool International Music Festival, football matches at Liverpool, Everton and Tranmere FC, rugby matches at St Helens; organised marches throughout the force area; spontaneous or planned protests; and civil disorder situations such as those experienced across the country in 2011. Another important part of our job is patrolling the city centre on a Friday and Saturday night to keep the public safe.
We need to raise around £200,000 each year to support the work of the Mounted Section; this figure does not include Police Staff costs.
You can donate here to support the work of Merseyside Police Mounted Section and keep us standing tall into the future.
