The Department entered into a unique agreement with the Manassas National Battlefield Park that allows Mounted Patrol officers to use the Manassas National Battlefield Park's horses and equipment on an as-needed basis. The horses are stabled at the Manassas Battlefield Park and remain the property of the U.S. Park Service.
The Unit is used for initiatives including crime prevention, directed patrol, public relations, ceremonies, and search-and-rescue missions. Members also patrol major shopping centers, commuter parking lots, events at live entertainment venues, the County Fair, and various local parades.
