Good behavior to be rewarding for local youth

Tuesday, May 29, 2018

Leduc’s annual Positive Ticketing campaign is up and running for 2018 for children and youth between the ages of five and 21. Over the next several months, youth will receive an added incentive for good decision making.

“Positive Ticketing is a great program within the City of Leduc that encourages our younger citizens to continue being the caring, community-minded youth they are,” says Leduc Mayor Bob Young. “We’re proud to have so many wonderful youth to award and to see this program reach its 10th year.”

Between May 29 and Oct. 31, local businesses are partnering with Leduc RCMP, Leduc Enforcement Services, Leduc Fire Services, Leduc Public Services’ staff and Leduc Nighthawks to reward local youth when they are seen doing good deeds around the community. These rewards include coupons to local merchants and or/ pool as well LRC passes. Ticket-worthy behaviours can include:

  • - Picking up litter
  • - Helping others
  • - Wearing protective gear when biking, skateboarding or Rollerblading
  • - Demonstrating pedestrian safety standards

The Leduc Positive Ticketing Campaign is hosted in partnership with the City of Leduc and the Leduc Community Drug Action Committee (LCDAC) to promote:

  • Safe and caring communities through positive interactions between youth and local authorities
  • Community partnerships with local businesses
  • Awareness and support to the LCDAC for their mandate and community efforts
