  1. To Whom It May Concern:

    I am currently a police officer in Kentucky and I am trying to do some research regarding Mounted Police trends that have emerged recently. I understand that it is common for new practices, ideas, methods, etc. to be developed and used in more of the western United States prior to coming east. I am looking for input from departments from different regions on what their tasks, purpose, and mission for their mounted units are becoming due to the change in policing in the recent years. If you have any resources or contacts I would greatly appreciate it.

    1. Hi Jean,
      The conference location changed recently. It will be held on April 7-9 at the Lexington Horse Park in Lexington, KY. A flyer should be available in the near future.

  2. I was wondering if NAMUCA can help me push a question out to the membership???

    I would like to know if any unit uses any equine specific software to manage their horse records, if so which ones???

    1. Hi Terri,
      You do not have to be members of NAMUCA to attend. Cost for the conference usually includes some kind of membership. The only stipulation is you have to be a sworn law enforcement officer. Hope that helps!

  3. I am trying to book flights and plan a vacation in the area before the conference. It does not give any details for end times on Sunday. Are there any services included like transportation to & from airport ? Is the travel to conference sites provided by the conference ? Last year I know some spouses were in NYC with officers. If so would they be welcome to come with us to a get together after conference activities ?

  4. Hello

    I am in charge of a mounted police unit in the north of France and i would like to havé some exchange with other mounted police unit

  5. I just heard about your conference from Kimberly Quintana with Denver PD Mounted Patrol. I am the Project Manager for the Mounted Patrol and have been sworn in by our Sheriff Steve Nowlin. For the last 2 years I have been working to get our Mounted Patrol in place. Through a couple of grants and the gift from the Bureau of Land Management WHIP program, we have received 3 Mustangs. They are working out just great! I would like to attend your next conference can you give me details on when that is and your web page to join your program? Thank you so much!

  6. Hello, I am currently a LEO for the Port Authority Police of NY/NJ. My Department does not and probably wont ever have a needed for a mounted unit (we deal with public transportation facilities). My question is my girlfriend and I will be retiring soon and would love to run a stable of 4-6 horses for handucapped children. We were wondering where one would be able to purchase retiring police horses from? Can your members help us? Thank you and stay safe.

  7. Hi, Has a date and hosting agency been determined for 2018?
    Also, has the board reconsidered allowing Sheriff’s Posses to attend? I have always found the NAMUCA Conferences to be enriching, and have missed participating in them over the last 2 years.

  8. Transportation is available for the conference, since we will be moving around to various venues.
    There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance from the hotel and the hotel does have an airport shuttle service available.
