THE business community in Walu Bay can now expect more police visibility.
This was after United Containers Limited gave two bicycles to the Mua-i-Walu community post in their efforts to help strengthen community policing in the area.
The bicycles have helped the officers stationed at the community post with their work in patrolling the area after business hours.
"This is our way of trying to strengthen security in the area," company financial controller Harry Chand said.
"At times the community post faces a shortage of vehicles and we thought that we should step in and help the officers in that area."
Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro thanked the company, saying the initiative by the staff and management was commendable.
"It is donations such as these that help us strengthen our ties with members of the community. We look forward to assisting the public in any way we can, and to get donations from companies is a positive sign for us," she said.
The company gave a container along with the $600 worth of bicycles. Mr Chand said the container could be put to some use.
"They wanted to extend their community post, so we also gave them a container," he said.
