Police chief welcomes round-the-island cyclist

Police chief welcomes round-the-island cyclist

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Kuo Wei-chi, a 21-year-old who lost her limbs to sepsis, ended her round-the-island bicycle tour at the National Police Agency headquarters in Taipei Wednesday in memory of her grandfather, who was a police officer.
By coincidence, she started her 18-day tour on March 22 in New Taipei City, which at the time had Chen Kuo-en as its police chief. Since then, he has been promoted to the position of director-general of the NPA, so he was again present at the finish line for Kuo.
Last year, she took a picture of her grandfather to the top of Yushan, Taiwan’s tallest mountain. He died out of sorrow caused by Kuo’s ailment, reports said.
On her tour of Taiwan, the young woman traveled from police precinct to police precinct, visiting local officers wherever she went. Kuo traveled along the west coast through Taoyuan, Hsinchu and Miaoli down south to Pingtung before moving up north again along the east coast and making the final lap from Keelung to Taipei on Wednesday.
Kuo thanked local police officers for their warm welcome and assistance on her trip, reports said. In response, Chen praised her bravery and expressed the hope that the public could continue to support the police, while the NPA would take her spirit to heart in providing services to the public.
