SPOTTED: In Paris, Cops Use Rollerblades

There are a lot of ways for police to get around: in cars, on motorcycles, on foot, even by horseback. In Paris, they do all that, but have another set of wheels in their arsenal: Rollerblades.

Rollerblades may have gone out of fashion in the United States with the end of the 1990s, but in France, they’re still common. I spotted these cops last summer, but, unfortunately, didn’t get to see them chase anyone down.
