The Dickinson Police Department is rewarding children who are wearing helmets during outdoor activities this summer, the department said in a statement.

The department is partnering with Dairy Queen, the North Dakota Sheriffs and Deputies Association, the North Dakota Chiefs of Police Association and other departments across the state to create the “I Got Caught” program.

During the summer, children in Dickinson and around the state will be rewarded with a free Dairy Queen ice cream if they are spotted wearing a helmet while riding a bike, skateboard, scooter or wearing inline skates.

When the child gets “caught,” a law enforcement officer will “cite” the child by issuing them a mock “ticket.” This ticket can be redeemed at a participating North Dakota Dairy Queen restaurant for a free small ice cream cone, the department said.
