In order to make patrolling sessions less tiring and daunting, Mumbai Police is patrolling on segways to keep tight vigilance at Marine Drive and Girgaum Chowpatty .
According to one of the official in Mumbai Police “Segways are being used by several police departments across the world. The scooters can quickly reach the spot and can ply on beaches too,”
The Mumbai Police has already procured two Segways for trial purpose. These have been installed with small police beacons and carriers to keep walkie-talkies, radio sets, and diaries to maintain records. The scooter batteries will be recharged at the beat chowkies or nearby local police stations.If the concept fits well, it will be implemented across the city and more Segways will be included on important promenades.
