Mounted Patrol Riders and Horses

Video Stories

Safety You Can See

From a humble beginning as an entertainment company providing horse drawn hayrides and Santa arrivals for shopping centers, A&O has evolved into one of the nation’s most respected providers of public safety. Keller and his late father, a 40-year veteran of law enforcement, designed the first privately owned mounted patrol in the United States to provide security for shopping malls. Continued expansion took the company into security for arenas, amphitheaters, stadiums, concerts, festivals, Business Improvement Districts, and other mass gatherings. In 2000, Keller established KES to provide turn-key security planning and implementation for clients.
