Starting June 1 and ending on September 2 , the Johnston Police Department will be monitoring the community for children who are practicing safe bicycle habits . If a police officer observes a child exhibiting good habits , they will be recognized through the "Busted in a Good Way" program . The program provides a positive opportunity for uniformed officers to interact with children and teach them the importance of safely crossing the road . Sergeant Grandon commented that this is a desirable ticket , earning the child a free ice cream at Van Dee ' s Ice Cream Shoppe .
Good habits that will earn a free ice cream ticket:
Wearing a helmet ,
looking both ways before crossing the street ,
using hand signals when turning , and
being awesome - because , after all , safety is important!
Every child that receives a ticket will be automatically entered to win a new bicycle .
