I can't speak to Roller Blade's merits, but the 1993 movie Airborne is a good time (and practically a style-guide for Cobra Kai).

Wasn't there a show in the late 90s called Campus Security where they patrolled in roller blades. Or am I'm just making stuff up at this point.

...annnnnnnnd Netflix and the history channel are now in an all out bidding war for the rights to make a show out of this. Whoever wins,... Well, I guess we ALL win because it'll be pretty cool to watch, actually.

Despite the comments above, this doesn't seem like a bad idea to me if a lot of their crime happens in the city. It's like bike cops, but more maneuverable and without having to worry about what to do with the bike when you go inside somewhere. They can sure skate faster than someone can run.
