This scheme came to be noticed when a constable wearing a red helmet was spotted on the road. This was met by curiosity from the public and the media. On following up, it was learned that these constables on bicycles will be expected to patrol a total distance of 7 kilometres a day, between 10 am and 5pm. The idea behind using a bicycle as a mode of patrolling is that constables on bicycles will be able to navigate narrow lanes and street corners that other patrol cars and bikes may not be able to access. In addition to this, the police say that having constables on bicycles will help them make eye contact with the public and could improve the access that the public has to them. Furthermore, having a fleet of constables on cycles could be more effective when there are traffic jams or huge crowd movements.
