KAKCHING: Manipur police department on Monday introduced its “Cycle Patrol Unit”, a step towards strengthening the relationship with the community and to enhance public friendly policing. 
The Cycle Patrol Unit was introduced at Kakching district police where 60 bicycles were allotted to three police stations and seven outposts.
