I have noticed that some police officers in Japan are riding bicycles. I think that this makes it impossible for them to catch up to a car or a motorcycle, so why are they using bicycles?

Policemen bicycles have "samurai turbo" installed. They're so fast there is no running away from the 'Charipoli' (police officer riding a 'chari'-bicycle).

Japan is a safe country so there is rarely a need to chase somebody.

As a Japanese, I always ask myself the same thing. Maybe it is to save money? However, big cities are always in a state of traffic jam so bicycles might be able to move around more swiftly anyway!!!

I believe its the traffic and the amount of people that hinders police officers to use a car or a motorcycle. Bicycles seem to be the best alternative to patrol the streets of Japan.

I'm not sure about how effective they can be at catching people. I've always thought they are there just there for patroling and other minor uses, not really for persecutions.

Patrol officers use bicycles a lot, but recently they started introducing motor bikes and cars as well. I think another reason is that in the city center there is a lot of traffic so using a bicycle is safer and more convenient.
