Skate School for Police Officers is a key piece of engagement for the new skate parks. The workshop will be run by three qualified instructors—two teenagers and one adult—who will teach the participating officers the basics of skateboarding: balance, pushing, stopping, turning, ollie, and ramp riding. At the end of the course officers will keep their equipment and skateboards and will have the skills to confidently use the new skateboard parks. It is our hope that by bringing together the skateboard community and neighbourhood police that long-lasting relationships might be forged through a meaningful shared experience. We love the idea that officers will keep their skateboard in their office at a high school or in the trunk of their patrol cars and when time permits, engage the community and the city’s youth at the new skateboard parks and elsewhere in the city.
