Hackettstown police officers will issue kids ‘tickets’ for good deeds

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – Usually, getting a ticket from a police officer means a fine or a day in court. But for kids in Hackettstown, it means a $5 gift card and spending time in Quick Chek.

The Hackettstown Police Department will be issuing a ‘positive ticket’ to children who are “caught” doing good things, thanks to the partnership with the Hackettstown and Independence Twp Quick Cheks, police said.

It could be something simple as exhibiting positive behavior or performing good deeds, police said.

If an officer witnesses your good behavior or positive behavior, you’ll be pulled over and issued a ticket, police said.

“No, you don’t need to go to court with your ticket but you will go to any Quick Chek with your ticket and enjoy some great food or drinks,” police said.

The purpose of positive tickets is to build relationships of trust with youth in our community and encourage good behavior.
