MPD Officers Issuing Tickets for Treats PDF Print E-mail

ticket for treat at Tiny ElephantMontclair Police officers are looking to hand out a lot of tickets this summer -- not as a penalty, but rather as a reward to kids they see wearing helmets while biking.

The ticket rewards program was initiated by local business owner Tracey Diamond, who approached the Montclair Police Department with the idea after reading about a similar program in another town.

“I reached out to a friend on the police force, who loved the idea and helped me to connect to the right department, leading me to Sergeant Williams of the Community Service Unit,” said Tracey. “A lot of my clients are in the food business, so I reached out to a few that would represent the different sections of town, causing no overlap in the project based on where tickets would be handed out.”
