The Drumheller RCMP gives out tickets for doing good things too.
A program local law enforcement run year round that's more prominent in the summer is the idea of getting a positive ticket, as opposed to getting one for doing something wrong.
This idea primarily extends towards our town's youth, according to Staff Sergent Kevin Charles, focusing on the good deeds these youth accomplish instead of the negative.
"If we come across a youth doing something for the community, helping someone out, or making a proper, right choice, we reward them with a positive," explained Staff Sgt. Charles. "What it is, is two free swim tickets to the Aquaplex."
"This could be something as simple as wearing a bike helmet when your friends don't. You're not giving into peer pressure, you're making that right choice."
Charles hopes this will become an incentive for other youth to make the proper decisions throughout their day including safety for themselves, others around them and being more helpful throughout the community.
"If they're actually making those smart choices wearing those bike helmets or crossing at cross walks as opposed to jumping in and out of traffic; That needs to be acknowledged and we encourage that behaviour."
