The Jamestown Police Department is again participating in a program to promote children wearing bike helmets, according to Scott Edinger, chief of the department.

"It gives us an opportunity to promote safety in a positive rather than consequential way," he said, "and it shows children they can freely approach and talk to us whenever they want."

Children observed by police officers will be given a "ticket" they can redeem for a free sundae at Dairy Queen in Jamestown.

Edinger said the program is held annually with many police departments around North Dakota participating.
