Midland Police Give ‘Tickets’ to Kids For Good Behavior – The Good News
The ‘tickets’ are good for a free ice cream cone at McDonald’s.
During the school year, Midland police officer Eddie Hinson works for the high school as a resource officer. During the summer, he’s on bike patrol - literally. He rides between 15 and 27 miles per day.
The other day, he spotted four siblings - Connor, Owen, Liam and Evelyn Crimmins - riding their bikes together. Officer Hinson said that they were making
“Good choices,” so he ticketed them. The tickets are good for free ice cream at McDonald’s.
Hinson says that they want to be seen in the community, and also to make sure that kids look up to the police. I think this is a darn good way to do it - bribing with free ice cream works for EVERYBODY! I wear a helmet...can I get ticketed?
