Hernando County, Florida -- Are you an experienced equestrian? Do you have a horse? Do you have spare time that you would like to use by serving your community?

How would you like to become a member of the Hernando County Sheriff's Office Civilian Mounted Unit?

The Hernando County Sheriff's Office is holding an information session for anyone that is interested in learning more about this fun and rewarding opportunity. The session will be held at the Emergency Operations Center located at 18900 Cortez Blvd., Brooksville, on Monday, January 27, 2014, at 7 p.m.
