CHICO, Calif. — As part of its program to increase visibility downtown, Chico police officers are encouraged to get out of their vehicles and walk around spots like City Plaza and Children's Playground, said Sgt. Dave Barrow.

A downtown bicycle patrol instituted several months ago is another part of that plan, and has already resulted in several arrests, especially for drug activity.
