Boston Dispands Mounted Police

The nation's oldest (1870) mounted unit was disbanded in Boston this month. I know police on horses are of limited use, but what they do do cannot be done by other police. It's just eleven horses and about the same number of officers. Seems like a bad way to save money. How about shutting down a few patrol cars instead?
