 The city traffic police have time and again gone an extra mile to help the citizens, like filling the potholes, de-clogging waterlogged roads during heavy rains and recently, a cop donated blood to help save lives, while on duty.

In a gesture to convey their gratitude for the cops' support, the residents of the city organised a free health camp for the traffic cops in Indiranagar.

Members of 'I Change Indiranagar'—an umbrella of eight resident welfare associations of Indiranagar—organised the event on Saturday. The necessary medical aid for the camp was provided by Narayana Health (NH).

Dr Kiran M, a member of the organisation and also a doctor at NH said: "The traffic police in the area have been extremely helpful in addressing the issues of our locality. There are a lot of parking and other traffic-related problems and the situation gets only worse during the peak hours. But the active cops have always come to our rescue."

"The traffic police have also been pro-active on social media and responds to us immediately even through Whatsapp messages if there is a problem," added Kiran.

Meanwhile, Imam Kasim Raja, additional commissioner of police (ACP) East, traffic said:"This initiative has further motivated us to do better work. We wish to give our best. The residents here, have also been co-operative with us."

A total number of 83 traffic cops participated in the camp. A lung test was also conducted to check for breathing and other related problems, along with blood test, diabetes, heart and general check-up.

The members are organising a Cycle Day for the residents on Sunday.
