SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

The ticket your kid gets from a police officer may not be cause for alarm, but rather, praise.

The Saginaw Police Department has announced Operation A.C.E. (Appreciate Children Everyday) good deed ticket program.

It’s designed to recognize and promote positive actions and deeds initiated by the children in the city.

School Resource Officers are encouraged to issue an A.C.E. citation after a good deed witnessed by the officer, teacher or other school staff.

The citation can be redeemed at the McDonalds restaurants in the city for a Big Mac sandwich.

The child will also be entered into a drawing at the end of the year.

D/Sgt. Reggie Williams stated, “I came up with this idea years ago for our department. It’s something similar to what I saw other departments doing and thought it would work here. It’s a great motivator and relationship builder for our SROs.”

The Saginaw Police School Resource Officers and Community Police Officers will also be participating in 7-Eleven's Operation Chill.

That involves officers giving youth Slurpee coupons for good behavior.
