Calvary Comes To Hayward City Hall

SCENE | Hayward City Hall, Aug. 9, 3:35 p.m.:
Three horse-mounted officers from the San Jose Police Department, including this one pictured here, travelled to Hayward in support incoming Hayward Police Chief Diane Urban, who was sworn-in Tuesday afternoon. The city’s new top cop once led the horse-mounted division during her 26 years in the South Bay. The officer says the department has eight equines for patrol and crowd control, but uses two at a time and cautions if they don’t get regular work, “they’re not much good to us.”
