How Policing Has Changed (6)

There was a time when most police forces in the country had dedicated Mounted Police Sections, including the West Midlands Police. Officers who worked in these sections were highly trained specialists in their field and were worth their ‘weight in gold’ in public order situations. Affectionately known as ‘donkey wallopers’ they are included among the slang words listed in ‘One In For D & D’ which for the uninitiated means ‘One person in custody for being drunk and disorderly’.
