Batman Approves: SFPD’s New Quadski Will Fight Aquatic Crime In McCovey Cove
Good news, Giants fans! Now you can get stinking drunk out on your raft in McCovey Cove, tumble into the water, and the police can swoop in, collect you and then drive you ashore to the nearest bin and deposit you for recycling.
A jetski that converts to an ATV with a simple click? That's just what is needed to patrol those treacherous waters adjacent to the San Francisco Giants' AT&T Park. They call it the 'Quadski', and now there's no more worries about fans in kayaks diving in for home run balls and drowning.
Even though to my knowledge, that's never happened. But the main thing is that the Quadski looks cool, and the police are now aquatic.

As one might imagine, this being San Francisco, there are already several complaints about it on social media. Stuff like" "Good to see where taxpayer dollars are going!"
Except ... no taxpayer dollars were harmed in the making of this Quadski. ABC News:
The CEO of Salesforce donated the over $50,000 "quadski" to the SFPD marine unit.
SFPD probably isn't offering ridealongs just yet but the quadski sure got noticed in McCovey Cove during the game.
Salesforce donated three to the City, and the SFPD got one -- to be used in search & rescue, and we assume, chasing Duckboats used for crimes.
