OCEAN CITY, Md.- The Ocean City Police Department has recently welcomed a new member to the department's mounted unit. The new police horse, Frasier, was picked up by mounted officers from Asbury University in Wilmore, Ky., where he had been trained. Frasier is a 4-year-old, Percheron Thoroughbred Cross.

Police said Frasier was purchased using a monetary donation that was given to the mounted unit by a charitable fund from the late Virginia Murray. This donation has also supported the purchase of additional horses in the past.

Frasier is currently in his initial training stages and becoming acclimated to his new home and stall-mates. Once he has adjusted to Ocean City and become familiar with many of the different things he will experience, he will be out patrolling the streets and boardwalk.

His first outing in Ocean City will be on Nov. 21 at Northside Park for the opening night of the 21st Annual Winterfest of Lights where the public will have a chance to see Frasier for the first time.
