Police in Wales in the United Kingdom have acquired tricycles to be used in combatting crimes.
BBC reported on Sunday that the Gwent police has bought four tricycles to be used against crime in Abergany and Newport areas
The report disclosed that they will be used as “safe spaces” where crimes can be reported, help sought and crime prevention advice given.
The Police Chief Inspector, Damian Sowrey, said explanations were given to residents on how the tricycles will be used and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive.
He said: “They were on show at our Behind the Badge day, giving local residents the opportunity to see them up close and to hear more about how they will be used.
The feedback was overwhelmingly positive with parents telling officers that they would feel safer knowing that there was support for young people out at night, and from women who could think of an occasion when the tuk-tuk would have been a welcome sight.”
