[VIDEO] Meet Zeus, The New York Police Department's Newest Equine Officer

Zeus is the newest equine officer to patrol the streets of New York City, offering his rider, Officer Caitlin Jones, a 10-foot "bird's eye view" over times square. Being one of the only gray horses added in recent memory, Zeus is quite a special addition to the force.

There’s a new horse with special talents in the NYPD. Zeus stands out as the only gray horse among 50 in the Mounted Unit. Early on in his training, Zeus’ rider, Officer Caitlin Jones, discovered that Zeus performs a special step on cue. Most days Officer Jones and Zeus, alongside Officer Kupferschmidt and his mount, Scout, can be found keeping Times Square safe for New Yorkers and the millions of visitors.
