Kids who wear a helmet while riding their bike this summer can get free ice cream

Local News

The Morrison Police Department is launching its summer helmet incentive program for its 13th year. This is a reoccurring program that rewards children for wearing a helmet and riding their bikes safely. If any Morrison police officer observes a child age 3 to 16 riding their bike safely, that officer will give the child a free coupon for ice cream. It’s a way to build positive relationships in the community. It’s also raising the awareness of the seriousness that not wearing a helmet can bring, as a Moline boy was killed while riding his bike several weeks ago.
