. The use of bicycles by the Police forces of Europe began in the late 1890s. Cycles enabled the policeman to patrol a larger area and were especially suited to use in towns and cities.
They make police officers more easily approachable and are nearly silent in operation so many criminals do not realize that an approaching person on a bike is actually a police officer.
In modern congested road conditions their maneuverability on crowded sidewalks and their ability to navigate narrow gaps in traffic offer advantages over police patrol cars.
