The Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office Mounted Patrol was established in the summer of 2015 with Deputy Jackie Stewart and her horse, Gunner. The pair was joined in the summer of 2016 by Deputy Brian Dickerson and his horse, Bo. The teams were certified by the Jackson Police Department in Jackson, WY.
The Mounted Patrol attends special events throughout the valley and provides extra patrol in areas such as fishing accesses and neighborhoods. In addition to making law enforcement more approachable to the public, the Mounted Patrol has a unique vantage point in crowded environments that allows them to be more visible to the public and spot disturbances from a distance. They are also trained to assist with traffic and crowd control.
