Good Choice Ticket Program

The Good Choice Ticket Program was developed to recognize good choices being made by Oakwood’s youth.

Beginning June 1 and ending August 31, Public Safety Officers will recognize local youth who are observed making good choices, such as: playing safely outside, looking both ways before crossing the street, using a crosswalk, wearing a bicycle helmet, and several other safe or courteous actions.

If your child receives a Good Choice Ticket, the recipient may redeem the ticket at one of the sponsoring local business partners for a reward. For 2021, the program sponsoring partners are:

  • Tropical Smoothie Cafe, 2307 Far Hills Ave, a free Jetty Punch smoothie.
  • Graeter’s Ice Cream, 2412 Far Hills Ave, a free single dip ice cream cone.

The Oakwood Public Safety Department will also have a non-sweet goodie bag option for those who prefer a non-sweet reward.
All Good Choice Tickets must be redeemed by September 20, 2021.

Chief Alan Hill stated, “The Oakwood Pubic Safety Department has a long-standing tradition of community-oriented policing. The goal of the Good Choice Ticket Program is to allow officers to meet and engage with local youth and their parents through a positive, friendly, and rewarding interaction.”

The Oakwood Safety Department thanks the 2021 business partners, Tropical Smoothie Cafe and Graeter’s Ice Cream, for supporting the 2021 Good Choice Ticket Program.
