Chilliwack – The RCMP in partnership with the Chilliwack Crime Prevention Society and the City of Chilliwack is excited to launch a ‘Positive Ticket’ campaign directed at community engagement with local youth.
The goal of the program is to acknowledge and reward positive behaviour displayed by youth or community members with a ticket. Folks may be ticketed for wearing a bicycle helmet while cycling, being a good role model, social distancing, wearing a face covering, helping others or picking up after themselves.
Positive ticketing not only serves as positive reinforcement for good citizenship but also allows local police officers the opportunity to engage in a positive way with the community, says Sergeant Krista Vrolyk spokesperson for the UFVRD.
Attached to the tickets is a voucher for a local business.
How exciting is it for a kid to receive a ‘Positive Ticket’ for their behaviour and celebrate with a free item from a local business, adds Vrolyk.
