4th Annual – “Toys for Tickets” Program


The Flagler Beach Police Department is proud to announce the annual “Toys for Tickets” program will once again be repeated this holiday season! Citizens who receive a warning citation for a traffic infraction or parking offense will have the opportunity to donate a toy in lieu of paying a fine. Citizen participation in this program is 100% voluntary.


Beginning Monday, November 5, 2018 and continuing through Monday, December 10, 2018, Flagler Beach Police Department Officers, at their discretion, will be issuing "toy waivers" along with warning citations for non-criminal State traffic and/or City parking offenses. The “toy waiver” allows the motorist to donate a new, unwrapped toy to “Christmas Come True” instead of facing a potential civil fine.

“Christmas Come True” is a non-profit organization based in Flagler Beach, whose mission is “to provide a complete Christmas experience for area resident parents who are unable to financially afford a traditional Christmas for their families.”


Motorists who voluntarily choose to participate in the program will be instructed to drop off a new, unwrapped toy, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at:


Flagler Beach Police Department

204 South Flagler Avenue

“This program has grown tremendously since its inception in 2014 and it’s become a staple of the holiday season here in Flagler Beach. We’re looking forward to another successful campaign again this year.” stated Flagler Beach Police Chief Matt Doughney. “The joy of the holiday season is the foundation of this program and the publics positive reaction over the past three (3) years to this initiative has been absolutely incredible” Doughney continued. “Keeping our roadways safe during the holidays is our goal and this programs mantra of “paying it forward” is a great way to assist families in our community that need help during the holidays.”


For additional information regarding this year’s program, please contact Chief Doughney at (386) 517-2020.
