Do The Right Thing Program


The Do the Right Thing program is designed to positively impact the youth of our area by publicly recognizing children who distinguish themselves by their behavior, establishing them as role models for their peers. They achieve this status by committing "random acts of kindness", or simply by "doing the right thing"! 

Any adult from the community can simply fill out a nomination form and submit it for selection each month. This includes parents, teacher, employers, neighbors and relatives, to name a few. Nomination forms can be obtained at any Patrol Division Office, the Office of the Chief of Police, or at the "Do the Right Thing" site.  For more information call (585) 428-7863.
