Operation Safety Cone
Get caught doing something safely and be rewarded too
What a great idea this is
During the month of June, police officers in the town of Norwich will be issuing “tickets” to children in Norwich for being safe. Students in the area “caught being good” and “being safe” will be issued a ticket that is redeemable for one free ice cream cone at Dan & Whit’s on South Main Street. The safety cone incentive co-sponsored by the Norwich Police Department and Dan & Whit's, hopes to provide positive reinforcement for youth making safe decisions such as choosing to wear a helmet when riding a bicycle or scooter, using the crosswalk to cross the road, and wearing a seat belt when riding in a car.
Some photos will be added to the story and will be provided by Norwich PD. Others have been taken by Demo Sofronas
These children and many more can earn a cone and stay safe too!

Looks like someone was caught doing something safely and will soon get the real scoop.

Ticket # 8 has been issued to Mica
Another happy "Operation Safety Cone" winner. Micah was "caught" being safe and issued a "ticket" for a free ice cream cone after he was observed wearing a safety helmet while riding his bicycle, and waiting for traffic to pass before crossing the street.
