Morinville – Two traffic safety-conscious youth were recognized in August for their positive actions. Twelve-year-old Lauren Smith was caught wearing her bicycle helmet while riding her bike and 9-year-old Calvin Plamondon was spotted stepping off his bicycle to cross the road, looking both ways before crossing the street, and wearing his helmet at the time. Both youth were given positive tickets for their actions.
Positive Tickets are issued to youth 18 years and under. When an Officer observes someone obeying the law, the officer issues that person a positive ticket which the recipient drops off their ticket at the Morinville RCMP detachment or at the town office for a chance to win a monthly draw of $100.00.
The project is a partnership between the Morinville RCMP, Enforcement Services and Community Services. The Positive Ticketing Program focuses on finding and recognizing the positive things youth are doing in our community. This is a dynamic approach to crime prevention and increasing positive connections, while working with young citizens to reduce crime.
