The Clayton Police Department is asking local businesses for their help with the “Caught Being Good” program. The program is designed to build a stronger relationship with the children in the community and the police department.

The purpose of the “Caught Being Good” program is to reward children for doing the right thing such as riding a bike with a helmet, picking up trash, or helping people. If the children are caught doing good deeds, they will receive a token which can be used on a selected date at the Clayton Police Department and pick a gift out of a treasure chest.

Clayton Police officers believe the program will build a stronger, more positive relationship with future leaders of the community.

The department is asking for donations to start the project. Any donation given is tax deductible and you will be given a letter of appreciation. All donors will be asked to participate in a group picture that will be placed into the Smyrna/Clayton Sun-Times. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Sgt. Harvey Scott at 653-8186.
