Glenn Heights Police Department Issues Gift Cards In lieu of Tickets During Routine Traffic Stops
By: Glenn Heights Police Department
Officer Illingworth pulled drivers over for minor violations. Once Officer Illingworth informed violators of their infraction, Santa Cop and his Elf danced up to the driver's side window and pleasantly surprised the driver with the information that instead of receiving a ticket, they would be given a gift card and a candy cane.
This is the second year that the City of Glenn Heights Police Department has operated this program and provided holiday cheer and relief to the community. Please see the video package attached to this email for visuals of the stops.
