Wisconsin Officer Patrols on Skateboard, Makes Traffic Stop

VIDEO: Wisconsin Officer Patrols on Skateboard, Makes Traffic Stop

The Green Bay (Wis.) Police Department has a brand new patrol division.
For now, there is just one member but he is making a big impact.                                

"I think I am the only one in the world who actually patrols with a skateboard"  Green Bay Police Officer Joel Zwicky told WFRV TV.

Known as "Skateboard Cop", he is earning superhero status in the community.
"When I am out on the trails patrolling people, I get a lot of selfies with people and things like that" he says with a laugh.

The board does serve an official purpose. Officer Zwicky has used it to make a traffic stop.

"I only tried it once on a trail when I caught a motorcycle there where he was not allowed. That was a jaw dropping experience for both of us" he says.
