Cowichan Valley youth get tickets — for good behaviour

Positive tickets: the community program where young people are caught and rewarded for doing positive things is back in the South End

Positive tickets: the community program where young people are caught and rewarded for doing positive things is back in the South End again this year.

This effort by the Shawnigan Lake RCMP, South Cowichan Community Policing, Block Watch and a group of participating businesses is all about supporting positive choices and positive behaviour.

Representatives from these groups will be on the lookout for young people doing the right thing. They’ll be the ones getting ticketed.

Once a youth receives a positive ticket, the next step is a visit to South Cowichan Community Policing’s office at Mill Bay to pick up a reward.

These can include gift packs or gift certificates to be used at participating retailers.

But, there’s more. On Aug. 27, at the Cobble Hill Fair, names will be drawn from all entries to win some major prizes.
