Random Photo


I have just found this photo.  It was one my son took while we were in Paris near the Louvre.  I have never seen police officers on roller-blades before.

Yeah I've only see the cyclist officers, never roller blades

This almost looks like a joke!! They could at least have bikes. Totally weird!

great way to get around for the police

What a hoot. Love it.

I didn't even notice the roller blades until I read your text. How strange, I agree with Ginny, a bike would be better.

I would think they could move fast in the crowds with their rollerblades.. Cool shot. Have a great day!

It's a zippy way to catch pick pockets!

No either have I but I have seen them on those Skagway thingies.

pretty slick!

I can see all kinds of disaster with these skates on the police. What are they thinking?

ellen b said...

I'm guessing they can navigate amongst the crowds better on these than on a bike. I'd fall on my fanny!

Felicia said...

that is interesting....police on roller skates

Sandra said...

great idea... and no fuel needed, just skaters

William Kendall said...

A bike would be far better. If they have to ditch it to go down a staircase, that's easily done, but try going down a staircase on those after a suspect.

Stephanie said...

Never on roller blades either. It is probably a great way to chase after someone.

Tanya Breese said...

i never have either!

So neat. Cops on horseback, now roller skates...what next!

This is something I've never seen, either. I wonder how well that would work should the need arise to pursue someone. Definitely not the job for me! LOL

Rose said...

I would never have thought they would use roller blades, either! I would love to see them chase someone in them.

Gattina said...

That's new to me too ! but it's a great idea !

Fabulous French I think! Years and years ago the French were the first to have supermarket staff on roller blades and I thought it was a brilliant idea. I bet they are seriously fit.

Kay said...

Now THAT is really interesting! I wonder if they're going after pick pockets or purse snatchers.
