Police give tickets to benefit charity

FLOYD COUNTY (KWWL) - Officers across the country are warning people to give.

Instead of a ticket, Sanson Park Police in Texas are giving speeders a Ticket For Tots. Drivers don't pay a fine, but must bring a toy for charity to the police station.

A similar system is happening in Floyd County. Anytime a deputy gives someone a warning for speeding, they also give them a card with information on donating to the Floyd County Food Bank.

The Sheriff's Department calls this Operation Smile, for both the drivers, and the residents in need.
