Last summer the Jenkintown police observed many Jenkintown children practicing safety in our streets — such as using crosswalks, wearing a helmet on a bike or skateboard, and looking both ways before stepping off the sidewalk. About 100 of these children were “ticketed” and every ticket was redeemable for a prize donated by local businesses and organizations. (See below for the full list.)
It’s finally time to hold a raffle to present two lucky “defendants” from last summer with a pair of brand-new bikes, just in time for the arrival of warmer weather! The raffle prizes are a Fuji bike donated by Advanced Sports International, and a Trek bike donated by the Jenkintown Police Department. Continue reading Police Department Bike Raffle
