Welcome to the Anchorage Police Department
Get CAUGHT wearing your bicycle helmet on the APD TREAT BEAT!
Sometimes getting a TICKET is a good thing.
This summer, the Anchorage Police Department and the Alaska Injury Prevention Center are partnering with several local businesses to encourage bicycle safety with the APD Treat Beat.
With this program, uniformed police officers will be on the look-out for kids 15 and younger “CAUGHT” wearing their helmet while riding their bicycle; those who are could be presented with a “TICKET” redeemable for a free ice cream cone from Tastee Freez, a cookie at Great Harvest Bread Co., or a dessert coupon from McDonalds.
Police officers are often working to ensure the safety of our community by targeting and responding to dangerous situations and behaviors. The APD Treat Beat approaches public safety and injury prevention from a different angle - by reinforcing good practices and rewarding kids who are wearing their bicycle helmets.
So please wear your bicycle helmet – it’s not only the law, it could save your life…and thanks to Tastee Freez, Great Harvest Bread Co., and McDonalds you might just get a “TICKET” on the APD Treat Beat!
