POLICE efforts to improve their visibility in the community have resulted in the donation of two bicycles. County councillor Roger Boote and Tim Raphael, of Cycle, Honiton, last week presented the bikes to the town's neighbourhood policing team. Councillor Boote used cash from his community fund, provided by Devon County Council, to contribute to the cause. Police Community Support Officer Phil Anning said: "These bicycles have already been used and are a great way to reach the extremities of the town, allowing officers to cover a much larger area and yet still stop and talk with people and deal with local issues. "They also have the added benefit of keeping these officers fit and healthy.
