About the Cavalry:
Established in the PMTO’s operational structure by Decree No. 6,271, of June 10, 2021, RPMon as a specialized unit of the Corporation, aims to add convergent efforts to enhance the Institution’s presence action. In this way, it operates in ostensible policing by setting up, adding to other policing processes already established and in progress. Cavalry is also used in shock operations, in the reestablishment of public order and peace, whether in urban or rural areas.
Furthermore, in an associated and integrated way, it serves equine therapy, a therapeutic resource that uses horses in an interdisciplinary approach in the areas of health, education and horse riding.
