Strengthening Police Visibility Through Bicycle-Riding Policemen In Manila

PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS, Regional Director, National Capital Region Police Office, commended the Manila Police District particularly the personnel of the District Mobile Force Battalion (MPD-DMFB) for reviving the NCRPO Bike Patrol as means of strengthening crime prevention measures.

The MPD-DMFB deployed personnel on bike as part of their Crime Prevention Patrol as well as to monitor the strict implementation of the guidelines for Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) and observance of health protocols in their area of responsibility.

Moreover, MPD-DMFB has been practicing Bike Patrol as their means of transportation in patrolling considering the traffic situation in Manila. Bike Patrol is also helpful in pursuing suspects especially in congested areas such as alleys which a typical police car cannot reach.

“As we fulfill our commitment ‘To serve and protect’ by all means we will double our efforts in maintaining the peace and order in our community and we will never allow any lawless elements to take advantage of this trying times.” PMGEN SINAS said.

PMGEN SINAS also stressed that Bike Patrol is also being practiced in other police districts of the NCRPO to beef-up police presence in the community. Likewise, using bike for patrolling is not only to increase the awareness of the public of policemen on the streets but also a means of increasing the physical fitness of our policemen,”he added.
