GET BUSTED IN A GOOD WAY BY JPD

The Johnston Police Department will be on the lookout this summer for kids in the community practicing good bicycle safety habits.

If an officer sees kids practicing good habits, they will get "Busted in a Good Way." “This is the fifth year we have partnered with Van Dee’s on this program,” said Sergeant Zach Grandon. “This program allows uniformed officers to interact with the kids in a positive manner and help them understand that safely crossing a roadway is important for their safety. This is undoubtedly the kind of ticket you want because it earns you free ice cream at Van Dee’s Ice Cream Shoppe.”

Good habits that will earn a free ice cream ticket:

  • Wearing a helmet, 
  • looking both ways before crossing the street, 
  • using hand signals when turning, and
  • being awesome - because after all, safety is important! 

The program runs through Wednesday, Sept. 1. Every child that receives a ticket will be automatically entered to win a new bicycle.
