There are three types of pigeon such as "Homing Pigeon" is a specific breed of pigeon with increased homing capabilities. "Racing Pigeons" are homing pigeons bred to fly fast over long distances. "Carrier Pigeons" are homing pigeons as well, but today's breed of carrier pigeons are weak flyers and mostly admired for their physical features rather than their homing

Category of Pigeon service :-

Depending on the kind of services they render the birds are categorised into Static, Boomerang and Mobile categories, each defined by its own special characteristics. The Static is a one-way service of special use during floods and cyclones whereas the Boomerang, which is two-way, helps maintain connection between police stations situated in far off areas. The Mobile service pigeons, on the other hand, are carried by police units on the move and used for the purpose of communicating with the headquarter.
