Here’s something that you’ve never heard of before. Chapel Hill Police Department recently announced a new initiative that’ll rapidly and effectively issue their residents with a ticket, but not for jaywalking or illegal parking, but for being a law abiding citizen, The Daily Tar Heel reports.
“Most people in Chapel Hill don’t break the law,” said Maria Palmer, who’s a council member in the burgeoning North Carolina town. “This is a way to show that police officers are here to enforce the law and, when you do the right thing, that they are on your side. Police are there to serve you, and the community appreciates this.”
Described as a “good opportunity to thank those for following the law,” Lt. Celisa Lehew stated the tickets will improve the relationship between the community and the police, and the stubs will actually be coupons to Noodles and Company and Franklin Street Yoga.
The program will reportedly launch at the end of October.
