At first, everybody thought he was joking and idea didn’t take off, but Zwicky, 40, said earlier this year when his department’s chief set a new initiative to find ways to engage more with the community, he floated the idea again.

“And I said, ‘You know chief, I had this crazy idea in the back of my head what would you do if I brought my board to work and started skating it?’ And he said, ‘Can’t hurt. Just don’t get hurt please,’ he goes. So that’s kind of how it started,” Zwicky recalled.

He started his unorthodox patrols in March. Every day, he loads the board into his patrol car, answering calls and patrolling the various neighborhoods in the city. When he breaks out the board – which has lights mounted on it – heads turn.

40 year old cop on a skate board? Sounds like a midlife crises to me. It is even sillier than cops on bikes.


After all there is no basket on a skateboard. Duh!
