Baton Rouge, LA -The newest members of the Baton Rouge Police Department were introduced to Broadmoor Elementary School students. The Mounted Patrol Unit rode onto the campus on Thursday, April 5, 2007, to give students a demonstration of their day to day activities.
Corporal Mary Ann Godawa and her partner Stand By Me were joined by Corporal Rob Arnett and his partner Whiner and Corporal Israel Chatman and his partner What About Bob. The visit was an opportunity for students to interact with police officers and the horses. Corporal Godawa explained the purpose of the patrol. She went into detail about how the horse are trained, fed and groomed. The students peppered her with questions about the daily tasks of maintaining a horse. The visit ended with each student getting one opportunity to pet the horses.
Corporal Chatman worked with Principal Larry Harris to bring the patrol to the school. The two know one another well. Corporal Chatman's two children attend Broadmoor Elementary.
