Youngsters are to be rewarded for good behaviour with a positive ticket.
Any child seen to be demonstrating good behaviour in and around Llandudno could be in line for a ticket which will allow them to claim an ice cream or a fruit bag from the town’s McDonalds.
The idea was thought up by PC Dan Ball, who felt children between the ages of 6 and 11 seen to be behaving in a good manner should be recognised and congratulated.
He approached McDonalds and they agreed to pilot the scheme with the West Conwy PCSOs.
“It could be as random as a child stopping to cross the road correctly or a youngster wearing a cycling helmet when riding a bike, which earns them a ticket” said PC Ball.
He added: “We are pleased that McDonalds have agreed to take part in this initiative, which sits in line with the force engagements strategies in respect of engaging children and can be used to distribute key messages.”
The voucher can only be exchanged for either a fruit bag or child’s ice cream (and cannot be exchanged for other adult products.) In order for the child to redeem the voucher they must be in the company of a person over 16-years-old.
