Police officers in Inverness can now attend local issues and patrol the area by push bike, after an agreement with Highland Council.
In a partnership arrangement with the council's community officers, who already use bikes in the city, police will be able to attend to incidents and to cycle, rather than walk, the beat.
A spokesman for Police Scotland said: "In partnership with the Highland Council community officers in Inverness now have access to bicycles and have been out in the community patrolling and dealing with the local issues identified by members of the public."
