NYPD'S 10-FOOT COPS


These are some of the New York Police Department's cops on horses that patrol high-crime neighborhoods, trot down Fifth Avenue for parades, make late-night shows of force through Times Square and take the lead during search-and-rescue missions along thicket-filled riverbanks and wooded urban parkland. “There’s a reason we call them the 10-foot cop,” Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said. “You can see them from blocks away, they’re great at crowd control and they’re probably the most photographed piece of equipment we have. I’m a huge fan.” I took these photos in Times Square last March 15.

Actually your pictures reminds me of "Madagascar" when the Zebra asked a policeman horse the directions to go to Grand Central.
