Goals: The goal is to promote summer safety and increase contacts with elementary aged children. "Goal" reduced injury and increased positive contacts with children. Total cost below $100. to the department.
During the summer, officers watch for elementary acting in a safe manner. This can include wearing a bike helmet, reflective clothing, pads, etc. It can also be for walking with a friend at night or crossing the street correctly. When the child is observed, the officer issues them a "Gotcha" ticket with a business coupon attached. This enables them to free treat and makes them eligible for a free bike drawing.
