The Florence Alabama Police Department visited local school for demonstration with robots, and horses from their Mounted Unit.


The Hazardous Devices Unit, and Mounted Unit with the Florence Alabama Police Department had the opportunity to visit the Riverhill School STEAM classes on Tuesday morning.

Officers took the time to let students see the equipment that is used on calls as well as participate in their own "suspicious package" scenario using smaller robots.

Students were also introduced to the horses from the Mounted unit as well as shown a demonstration on how the horses are used in crowds.
