DENVER,Colo.-October 20.2012-Mounted police ride their horses down the 16th Street Mall during the 7th Annual Zombie Crawl. Mounted patrols are often used as crowd control because of their mobility and height advantage. The high visibility gets the officers noticed and gives them a wider area of observation all in the hopes of deterring people from committing crimes.
