GVPD Positive Ticket Program Celebration

In July, Grass Valley Police Department began issuing Positive Tickets to youth they “caught” doing good deeds.
This Friday,  from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM, all kids who received a Positive Ticket during the summer are invited to attend a Pizza and Raffles party at Round Table Pizza on Sutton Ave, GV.  Coordinator Ned Russell talks about the program and event.

Recidivism (repeat offenders) dropped from 60% to 8%.

Pizza is at 5:00 on Friday; the raffle is expected to start at 6:00.  Prizes have been donated by merchants and caring community residents and include gift cards and certificates.
Representatives from NEO, GVPD, and GV City Council will be participating in the event.
