The Weekly Briefing – Operation Sting

Chief Bodine hopes to hand out a lot of tickets this summer.

by Corrin Binford

The Wellsboro Police Department has partnered with Peggy’s Candies in order to promote their new STING program in the community. In order to keep school a fun, safe and positive environment, students are encouraged to remember STING: a guide to a positive school environment. Children who are caught around town by local police doing the right thing will receive a ticket for free ice cream. This program applies to any child with exemplary behavior, both visitors and residents.

What does STING mean?

Inspire Others

  • Set good examples – someone might look up to you
  • Be the face of a leader
  • Include everyone in activities
