Fairfield Police Promote Summer Bicycle Helmet Safety
Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department, in conjunction with the Fairfield Municipal Alliance Committee will once again be on the lookout this summer for children who are wearing their required helmets when riding their bicycles. When observed by an officer, these children will be given coupons that will entitle them to one of the following:
- A free slice of pizza and a soda from Hollywood Pizza
- A free slice of pizza and a soda from Puzo’s Pizza
- A free bagel and bottle of water from Manhattan Bagel
- A free ice cream from Carmellas
Officers will also be taking enforcement action against those individuals found not to be wearing required helmets as well. “Obviously the summer weather presents greater opportunity for children to be out on their bicycles and it is our hope that this program will again serve as an incentive for them to comply with the law and get a reward for doing so. It also is a great relationship builder between our community’s children and our officers” said Deputy Chief Anthony Manna. The program will run throughout the summer.
The Fairfield Police Department would like to acknowledge and thank our sponsors and the Fairfield Municipal Alliance Committee, without whom, this program would not exist.
