The Positive Ticket Program Has Started!

The Derry Township Police Department will be starting the third year of the “Positive Ticket Program,” which runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day.  During this time period, officers will be handing out positive tickets to children in the community who are observed doing something right.  Each ticket comes with a certificate for a small treat at a local establishment.

At the end of the summer season, a handful of random tickets will be drawn as grand-prize winners.  These grand-prize winners will be announced at a Board of Supervisors meeting after Labor Day, and the prizes will be handed out at that point.

Derry Township Police would like to acknowledge The Hershey Company, Hershey Entertainment & Resorts, Texas Roadhouse, Adventure Sports, Toys on the Square, and Turkey Hill for their donations to this year’s Positive Ticket Program.  We would also like to thank Tanger Outlets, Hershey for their contribution that paid for the printing of the positive tickets.

If you would like to make a donation to this program, please contact Detective Andrew Herr at (717) 534-2202 or
