This seems a not so wonderful way to catch criminals, so I guess their duty is limited to situations where they're just a helpful resource. Only in movies where the thiefs run straight down a sidewalk or road conveniently would the skates be that great for the chase. However, being included in any honor guard that includes motorbikes and firefighters is pretty nice. We're on a thin schedule of reinforcement, we skaters!</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="48.858503">48° 51' 30.6108" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="2.294362">2° 17' 39.7032" E</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=48.858503+2.294362+%28%2C+%2C+%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
