Dear Boston City Officials, Senators/Congressman:

We the undersigned strongly oppose the disbanding of the Boston Mounted Police.  



This historic unit, the oldest in the country, provides great value to the citizens of Boston through their community policing, crowd control, and other services.  They project a professional and positive image of the Boston Police Department and the City of Boston.



Disbanding this unit would result in minor budgetary savings and would be totally offset by the loss of their dedicated service to the citizens of Boston.



I urge you to do everything you can to support and re-activate this distinguished mounted police unit so it can continue its proud legacy of service to the City of Boston.

Thank you for your time

Sincerely,
