Operation Brain Freeze (Bicycle, Scooter, and Skateboard Helmet Safety Program) – The officers of the Lacey Township Police Department through PBA Local #238 have joined forces with Ralph’s Italian Ice with Operation Brain Freeze for this summer. If an officer spots a child in Lacey properly wearing a helmet when riding a bicycle, scooter, or skateboard, the officer has the ability to stop and award the child a gift coupon for a free ice cream. The coupons are being provided as a community service effort to promote safety and increase the positive interaction between officers and the youth of the community. A big thanks to the owners of Ralph’s Italian Ice (349 Route 9 North) and PBA Local #238 for sponsoring this program. – Chief David A. Paprota, Ed.D.
The program will continue through Labor Day. Officers also have access to bicycle helmets purchased through the Lacey Municipal Police Foundation to provide to youth of the community who may be in need of a safety helmet. Any questions should be directed to Sergeant Robert Flynn at RFlynn@laceytownship.org or call 609.693.6636 x2578.
