Skateboard Cop, A Police Officer Who Patrols the Streets of Green Bay, Wisconsin on a Longboard

Green Bay, Wisconsin police officer Joel Zwicky is affectionately known as “skateboard cop” for his habit of riding around on a longboard. Officer Zwicky patrols the streets and trails of the upper-midwestern city on his board, which he keeps on the front seat of his patrol car when he needs a bit more speed.

It had gotten some smiles and laughs for years, but this year the chief said “go ahead, go out there and don’t get hurt and we’ll see what happens.” Locally, it’s been fantastic. There’s been a lot of support. I’ve been meeting people on the trails and down the sidewalk. It’s been great.
