Any one of the Bikes company needs to make a dedicated cop bike, every police department is buying these kaam chalau version of the commuter bikes.
Apache bikes are prety good for policing tbh, have experienced policing on them in the one of the toughest terrains for local police in jharkhand, suspension and seat is kind of stiff but still it is helpful.

Can you please tell me the difference between Delhi police parakram unit and QRT??
Parakram units are mandated for anti-terror and other operations warranting an armed response, while QRT teams are small teams of trained commandos for quick response or first respond to terrorist activities.

So, its true that Delhi police has both parakram and QRT teams separately????

The civil cops here are a hawaldar, or "major" as we call them, and a sub inspector who is most probably a OC. Anyways, Bihar being a disturbed state, cops from some police stations do carry firearms.

Sounds like the difference in the U.K. between a AFO (armed firearms officer) and SFO (specialist firearms officer). AFOs are basically armed patrol officers with a little bit of added training. They drive around like any other officers but in ARVs (armed response vehicles), they are the first response to any firearms or serious incident

SFOs are a step above that, they are not normally patrolling and operate in teams for pre-planned raids or responding to terrorists events and large scale criminaincidents.

And step above that are CTSFOs (counter terror specialist firearms officers), they are basically the equivalent of GIGN but not on a national level, they belong to whatever local police force requires them. They are almost only deployed to deal with terrorists events. Afaik only the largest police forces in the U.K. have CTSFOs.



but then there is QRT and SWAT?IIRC QRTs belong to local police stations whereas SWAT belong to the Delhi police HQ?
