On October 13, 2003, Bali Chief of Police Inspector General Made Mangku Pastika accepted the donation of 150 bicycles from HM Sampoerna - one of Indonesia's leading cigarette manufacturers.
The bikes represent a welcome support to Chief Pastika's policy of high-visibility police patrols to increase security at the island's main tourist areas.
Special tourism police assigned to the bike patrols are outfitted with language training, radios, and tropical uniforms incorporating short trousers. In addition to their normal policing duties, the tourism patrol officers are encouraged to provide information and directions to island visitors.
