Morinville – Four Morinville youth were awarded some cash and a certificate for their positive behaviour Friday. October winners of the Town of Morinville’s Positive Ticketing Program were 7-year-old Braeden Theriault, for wearing his helmet and 10-year-old Ethan Winfield, 11-year-old Liam Winfield, and 13-year-old Devin Rusk for using the crosswalk.
The Morinville RCMP, Enforcement Services and Community Services have teamed up to implement a proactive program – focusing on youth within the Town of Morinville. The Positive Ticketing Program focuses on finding and recognizing the positive things youth are doing in our community. This dynamic approach to crime prevention increases positive connections while working with young citizens to reduce crime.
Positive Tickets are issued to youth under the age of 18. 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.
