COUNTY SERVICES BUREAU DEPUTY WILLIE LLOYD AND HIS PARTNER COLONEL MAKING A DIFFERENCE.

Deputy Willie A. Lloyd a 20 Year Law Enforcement Veteran is currently assigned to LAC+USC Hospital.
Deputy Lloyd along with his four legged partner “Colonel”, a 16 year-old Quarter Horse, joined the Sheriff’s Department Mounted Enforcement Detail (M.E.D.) in 2011. The Mounted Enforcement Detail currently consists of full time Deputy Sheriffs, and some Sheriff's Reserves. Personnel purchase their own equestrian mounts (horses) which they use for the detail. Full time Deputies train and deploy primarily in addition to their regular work week and separate from their units of assignment.
The mission of the Mounted Enforcement Detail is to provide the Department with a well-trained equestrian unit capable of being utilized in a variety of situations including, but not limited to:
Crime suppression/Directed Patrol
• Crowd Management
• Ceremonial Events
• "Riderless Horse" at some Deputy funerals
• Static Displays
• Wildfire Equine and Livestock Evacuation
During the past few years, M.E.D. has been deployed to significant crowd management incidents including: the Forum in Inglewood as part of a mutual aid response, Martin Luther King Hospital as part of the Tactical Response Force, Lynwood and Compton Christmas Celebrations, West Hollywood Halloween Event, Cinco De Mayo festival at Whittier Narrows Regional Park, Major League Soccer games at the Home Depot Center in Carson and the annual Rose Parade in Pasadena.
