The Slidell Mounties are keeping the holiday season safe for shoppers in Slidell.

You may not know that there are mounted police units throughout the country, including the city of Slidell in St. Tammany Parish. The Slidell Police Department shared video of their mounted officers and their horses patrolling a shopping center during the busy holiday shopping season.

The post says that Officer Robert Crowell and his horse, Misfit, went inside PetSmart while Officer Eldon Juneau and his horse, Chesney, stayed outside to monitor the parking lot. The post also says the mounted officers have been patrolling the shopping center since Black Friday and that PetSmart's policy allows any animal to enter as long as it's leashed.
