Casco Bay CAN Positive Ticket Program

The Cumberland Police Department writes, “Meet Daniel! Daniel was out with his (very proud) Mom for a bike ride, when he was spotted by Chief Rumsey. The Chief stopped to chat with Daniel and his Mom, and gave Daniel a Positive Ticket (with a gift certificate) for making healthy choices by going for a nice bike ride, wearing his helmet and observing safe riding habits! We’re out working to “catch kids doing right!” Have an amazing day.”

Thank you to the Cumberland Police Department and the Food Stop in Cumberland for supporting our Positive Ticket program!

college-graduation
• Talk to the parents of your teens’ friends to confirm plans for after graduation and exchange phone numbers
• Have your teen check in at different times
• Make sure that you know the address where your teen will be
• Let your teen know that colleges can take away what they have offered- Illegal behavior could lead to a loss in scholarship funds or acceptance to a college
• Consider hosting an after graduation party that is substance-free and ask other responsible adults to help host the party
