HOULTON, Maine (WAGM) - The Houlton Police Department announced today the launching of a community program to reward youth for performing kind feats. The “Sweet Treats for Kind Feats” program was initiated by Houlton Police Officer Mallory Clayton.
“Mallory who is very community orientated, designed the program and coined the program’s name. Considering all that we do in response to law enforcement, it is the goal of the program to respond to the good in our community as well, a great “change of pace” for the officers. “, says Chief Tim DeLuca.
Officers will carry tokens for a free ice cream to Houlton Farms Dairy and when they see a youth perform a “Kind Feat”, the officer will reward the youth and their kindliness with a token. In addition, anyone in the community that witnesses a “Kind Feat” can contact Officer Clayton by phone or by email (posted their website at www.houltonpolice.com) and one will be delivered to the youth.
