Skating on Thin Ice…!!!

August 19, 2007

Catching up on the news and stuff I was perusing the Sunday edition of that veritable tabloid of conservative support the Sunday Express, when I espied an article of some interest to my tired and beleagured brain.

With a blinding flash the old neurons kicked into overdrive as I read about the latest in Policing innervations for fighting crime in the south of our once great country.

I have looked at various Police blogs and I,m sure they are in the offing for writing about this new scheme. But in the mean time I thought I would bring it to your attention.

It seems that the thinking behind this is to endear the Forces of Law & Order to the general skateboarding fraternity. This will show the “yoofs” that the Police are cool and have street cred and can “get down with the people”…”innit!”

We in the Ambulance Service have had our own skateboard unit in place for a while now. A very high profile unit of Medical Skateboarders called the Skateboard Health Intervention Team.

The team was founded on the 1/04/04.
