Positive ticket winners for the month of June were 9-year-old Cameron Maynard for wearing his helmet while riding his bike; 10-year-old Elias Thompson for also wearing his helmet while riding his bike and walking his bike across the road; 11-year-old Breyanna Randell for doing school patrol and 13-year-old Alexandria Olthuis for using the crosswalk. Making the presentation to the two winners were Community Peace Officer James Alaeddine and S/Sgt. Mac Richards.
Positive Tickets are issued to youth under the age of 18 years old. When an Officer observes someone obeying the law (i.e.. wearing a bicycle helmet, using the crosswalk), the Officer issues that person a “positive ticket”. The person must then drop off their positive ticket at the Morinville RCMP detachment for a chance to win a monthly draw of $50.00. – Submitted Photo
