UP DGP OP Singh today took to the roads in Lucknow on a bicycle, with a large contingent of police officials, in a bid to inspire more police officials to maintain their fitness and to promote community-friendly policing.

Talking to India Today, he urged the police officials in the state to go out every morning on bicycle patrols to promote community-friendly policing as well as monitoring the morning traffic in their area.

“This will also ensure that the local police officials are well aware of the problems in their area, including the state of the roads, traffic conditions etc.,” he said.

Praising this move by the DGP, Hindustani Biradari Vice-Chairman Vishal Sharma said that this move will put a human face to the police force and will make the police officials more approachable to the public.
