Hanoi’s Department of Public Security began bike patrol in urban districts in the city on a trial basis since August 12.

Seventy two Thong Nhat-branded bikes, which are specially made for the purpose, were handed over to the police force at 12 wards in 12 urban districts, each ward gets six bicycles.

The bicycles are painted green, the same colour as the uniforms of the local police force.

After a three-month pilot, the municipal police will review the efficiency of the model to see should it be expanded.-VNA
