To the best of his knowledge, Officer Joel Zwicky of the Green Bay Police Department in Wisconsin is the only skateboard cop in the world.

Many other officers ride skateboards for fun. Zwicky does, too. But this custom skateboard with flashing red and blue lights in the front and back is his official patrol vehicle.

It's his tool to connect with people in the skateboarding community and in parks. The skateboard is a great way to start conversations and form relationships.

So far, Zwicky has pulled over only one person from his skateboard. He once saw a man riding a motorcycle on a park path. So he made a traffic stop from his skateboard and gave the rider a citation.
