MERSEYSIDE POLICE MOUNTED SECTION

STANDING TALL,
SINCE 1886

At the time The Liverpool City Police Force was established in 1836, all transport was horse-drawn, including Police and Fire services. However, the force didn’t have its own Mounted Department, with any horses used hired from local “jobmasters”.
