Citations issued for good behavior
CONCORD, Mass. - Getting a ticket from police in one Massachusetts town isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Concord's police department says it plans to issue up to 200 "citations" for good behavior. That could include such things as wearing a bicycle helmet or a seat belt, yielding to pedestrians at a crosswalk or looking both ways before crossing a street.
Police Chief Joseph O'Connor says it's a light-hearted way to connect positively with the community.
Instead of a fine or a court appearance, these citations can be redeemed for two scoops of ice cream at Reasons to be Cheerful, a local dessert cafe. The owner of the restaurant, Wade Rubinstein, agreed to donate the ice cream.
