Amy Jones: Helping the children

To the editor:

I wanted to take a moment to recognize a wonderful service the Craig Police Department provides this community.

My son and daughter were riding their bikes around Sunset Elementary School with their helmets on when they were approached by a police officer.

The officer asked them if they always wear their helmets.

When they answered yes, they were each given a coupon for a Wendy’s Frosty.

Our children, ages 5 and 7, respectively, are beginning to experience the peer pressure of not wearing helmets.

Having a police officer (whom they respect and hold in very high regard) reward the decision to wear helmets was just the motivation they needed to continue this safe practice.

As a parent, I appreciate the time spent by the office to reinforce the importance of wearing helmets.

Thank you to the Craig Police Department for supporting such an important message to children.
