Police Officers Surprise Families With Gift Cards Instead of Tickets

MODESTO (FOX40) — Officers with the Modesto Police Department handed out dozens of "holiday tickets" over the last few weeks.

The recipients of the tickets weren't given dates to appear in court, but instead received $25 gift cards to Target.

Officers said they used the tickets as a way to educate the community on the importance of traffic and pedestrian safety while spreading a little Christmas cheer.
