The fast arm of the law

People getting out of hand in Zurich's parks this summer will find themselves quickly apprehended by police on rollerblades. The nine women and 25 men of the new skating unit (replacing officers on horseback for the summer) will zip around the lake and the city centre maintaining order. They are “good, fast and competent”, said Esther Maurer, the chief of police. So, if you see a skater with a blue flashing light on his head, mind your manners.

He he, this made me laugh.... I'll look out for rollerblading swiss policemen! Taken from The Economist Cities Guide for Zurich
