The department’s mounted patrol unit will receive Vicki Bourg’s personal horse, Skinny, on Tuesday at the Lancaster Events Center in Lincoln.
Bourg, a former Lincoln police officer and school resource officer, died in January 2011 after a cancer diagnosis. Skinny is being donated by Bourg’s husband, Jesse Bourg.
The department says the 12-year-old male horse has been ridden and trained in various environments. Skinny will go through a series of tests and training before he is officially assigned to the unit.
