Sarasota County Sheriff's Office Welcomes LEO

Business

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY MAR 10, 2017

The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office Mounted Patrol Unit is debuting their newest horse, LEO. LEO is a 13-year-old Hanoverian Gelding who was donated to the agency in August 2016 by Dr. Katherine Standley, a neurologist from Tampa, in preparation of the retirement of two other horses from the unit. He slowly began working with the sheriff's office mounted patrol riders and became a natural fit due to his calm demeanor and easy-going disposition. LEO quietly hit the streets during the holiday season to assist at local malls and during pub crawls and special events on Siesta Key. Since joining the unit, LEO has participated in emergency response training in Orlando and recently assisted with the search for a missing man on Lido Key.
