Metropolitan Mounted Unit has created the “Mini Mounties” program.  The mission of the program is to mentor kids from low income, high crime communities and take them on excursions to amusement parks, plays, and sporting events.  The primary focus is to establish the essential building blocks to a great working relationship and partnership with communities, families, and most importantly, the kids who are in need of positive reinforcement. 

The gifts were provided by the officers, a private business, Los Angeles Police Protective League, and the Los Angeles Police Credit Union.
