The Philippine National Police has launched its "Bike Patrol" program to step the fight against street crimes.

The PNP said the policemen on bicycles will be deployed in key tourist areas in the country where petty crimes usually happen.

Trainers from the United States San Francisco Police Department even visited the Philippines to share techniques in apprehending criminals using bicycles.
