Police Officers in Bismarck, Mandan and Dickinson are on the lookout for an unusual kind of "suspect".
Instead of looking for the bad guys, they are actually looking for kids doing the right thing.
Kids "caught" wearing helmets when riding a bike, skateboard, scooter or skates will get a mock "ticket" for free ice cream.
It's a partnership between police departments, AAA and Dairy Queen.
The program is all about promoting safety.
It is estimated that less than half of kids 5-14 wear helmets.
Bismarck Police Officer Clint Fuller says, "The importance of wearing a helmet is great. From seeing stuff out on the street of kids not wearing a helmet and being involved in accidents. Being a law enforcement officer and understanding the importance of it. And rewarding kids for good behavior. They get free ice cream cone, it's a fun thing. They are like, "wow, it's important, officers are noticing I'm doing a good job and I got caught doing something well."
AAA is giving away free children's bike helmets and fitting helmets next Thursday June 27th from 1-4 at AAA Bismarck at 3113 N. 14th St.
