‘Skateboarding cop’ alum featured on WPR
UW-Green Bay alumnus Joel Zwicky ’97 continues to make headlines as Green Bay’s “skateboarding cop.” Wisconsin Public Radio’s Patty Murray this week did a story on Zwicky, a city officer who hits the streets on his long board to patrol and build rapport within the community. “We’ve always been told we’ve got to dress the same. We’ve almost got this Storm Trooper uniform. We’re all like clones,” Zwicky told Murray. “But each one of us has our own talents and experiences we bring, and if we can start tapping into that and allowing officers to bring their own talents and passions to work so that they can use those to help relate and police those communities, I think we’re going to be way ahead.” Full story.
