The Mounted Unit is commanded by a lieutenant who also supervises the K9 squad. They are part of the Field Services Division.

There are two squads which are comprised of 2 sergeants and 15 senior corporals. Sergeants and senior corporals are selected from the Department through an interview process when a vacancy occurs. Prior riding experience is not required, although some members have a background in raising or riding horses. New members must complete a seven week basic rider course and 2 weeks of field training with a senior officer.

The current staff also includes a training officer and stable manager.
