Bali Police Add Golf Carts to their Vehicle Pool
Slow Moving, High Profile Carts Part of Community Outreach Program by Bali Police.
The Denpasar traffic police are enhancing their community policing efforts via the introduction into service of three specially equipped "patrol" golf carts to be used in three prime locations: Lapangan Puputan in downtown Denpasar; Niti Mandala in Renon; and along Sanur Beach.
In launching the electric-powered patrol vehicle, a police spokesperson told the Indonesian-language DenPost: "the main aim (of the program) is to foster interaction and communication with the public. Moreover, we want the public to feel a direct police presence."
The battery-powered vehicles are intended to provide a high-profile presence for officers on day-time patrol in the designated areas allowing officers to aid traffic flows through better parking and traffic control.
"Hopefully, our efforts will receive a positive response form the general public," added the police spokesman.
