The local RCMP handed out 'positive' tickets to kids throughout the community for things such as personal safety and positive attitude.
Ranchland Victims Services and the RCMP paired up for a local initiative for positive ticketing from June 15 to September 12, handing out the grand prizes on September 15.
Positive tickets were given out by the local RCMP officers who ‘caught’ kids demonstrating personal safety (wearing helmets), being a community hero (doing good deeds), demonstrating a positive attitude (waving at law enforcement), making smart choices (observing crosswalk rules) or demonstrating community pride (picking up trash).
Along with the positive ticket, youth received a coupon and got a free treat or prize supplied by local businesses or organizations, with their name being entered for the grand prize, a bike and helmet from Alpenland.
The two winners from the positive ticketing initiative were Annalise Pelly and Zeke Foster, who received their bikes at Alpenland on September 15.
Donations were provided by the Blairmore Lions, Crowsnest Pass Pool, Happy Mart, Family Resources Center and Crowsnest Candy Company, along with the bikes from Alpenland.
