Ogdensburg Police Department to Hand out Positive Tickets to Well Behaved Children

Positive Behavior Tickets
The Ogdensburg police department will begin issuing "Positive Tickets" to area children who are observed exhibiting positive behavior in our community. Examples of the types of positive behaviors that may result in a ticket are:

using good manners, sharing, lending a hand, making a good choice, being a good role model, wearing a helmet while riding their bicycle, staying active, using the crosswalk, putting garbage in its place, volunteering, being involved in the community and other positive behaviors observed by our officers.

This program was adapted from one that officers became aware of being used by the Plattsburgh Police Department. Chief Andrew Kennedy said, "Our officers recognized this as an excellent opportunity to encourage positive behavior and to make a positive connection with the children in our community. Detective Jarrett LeClair has been spearheading the program and received an excellent response and show of support from our local business community."

Local businesses have offered various free treats for any children receiving a "Positive Ticket". Participating businesses providing "Donations" for 2019 are:
-Dirty Gringo
-Cams Pizza
-Little Italy
-Big Cheese
-Burger King
-Jrecks Subs
-New Media OutPost
-Pizza Hut
- Fish'er Chips
