Positive Tickets is a pilot project being run in the Canterbury and Swale districts from August 2016 to August 2017. It is primarily aimed at young people aged 11- 14 years (we may include some people outside of this age bracket).

The basic principle of positive ticketing is that uniformed officers (Kent Police Officers, Community Wardens and Council Officers) issue a positive ticket to a young person in recognition of a positive action or behaviour that helps their community. As a reward the young person can exchange their ticket for a free activity such as swimming, roller skating or tennis.

The project aims to develop a positive relationship between uniformed officers and young people based on a positive initial contact. It is a good ice breaker and will promote better relationships with young people who are more likely to respond positively to recognition and reward. We also hope to encourage young people to contribute more to their local communities and make better and healthier life choices.
