As written on the department’s Facebook page, Brimfield officers are encouraged to write as many tickets as they can targeting that specific group.

“My officers will have a quota for tickets … at least one per shift. We are going to be profiling, too,” Chief David Oliver wrote last week.  “I am strongly encouraging my officers to write as many as they can, every shift, every day.”

‘Operation Safe Summer’ will be rewarding kids for wearing their helmets while biking — and the ticket is a voucher for a free ice cream cone.
