The Dover Police Mounted Patrol currently receives no tax funding. Therefore, we look to the community for sponsorship and volunteer support.

The Dover Police Mounted Patrol relies on volunteers to accomplish a number of tasks from stable management to horse exercising. Some volunteers have extensive equestrian backgrounds, while others have none, but have been willing to "learn on the job”. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age, and have parental permission if under 18. Experience with horses is not a requirement, but a willingness to work with and around our horses is.

Businesses in the community are able to offer an annual "Paddock Sponsorship" in the amount of $500. This allows us to purchase feed for our horses, and in return, each paddock sponsor receives a 3’x 5’ sign, which is displayed on the fence surrounding the paddock of our stable facility on Cocheco Street.
