When you have police men patrolling your streets in their jeeps, people usually feel less comfortable approaching them with their problems. To ease the communication between people and the cops, in Delhi the cops took an initiative to patrol on cycles that had a board saying ‘Delhi Police’! This created a better environment for the common people to connect with the cops!
People felt comfortable taking their problems to the police men who were cycling about the city and immediate actions were taken by the police on the streets!
The cycle comprised of tubeless tires and also had an advantage of not getting punctured. Along with a First aid kit, the police men not only patrolled within the city but even in outskirts of the place! They have wireless earphones equipped in cases of emergency as well.
The initiative was taken up by Amulya Patnaik, Delhi Police Commissioner. This way the people felt that the cops were more friendly to them and they got solutions to their problems instantly!
