FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Toys for Tickets – Christmas in July!

July 13, 2021 – The Flagler Beach Police Department is proud to announce that the popularity of our annual “Toys for Tickets” program has inspired a “Christmas in July” version of the traffic safety initiative that will take place later this month. Citizens who receive a warning citation for a traffic infraction or a parking offense can volunteer to participate in a program that truly benefits the youth of our community. Citizen participation in this program is 100% voluntary.

Beginning Sunday, July 18, 2021 and continuing through Saturday, July 31, 2021, 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” provides motorists with information on how to donate a new, unwrapped toy to the Police Department. At the end of the campaign the Police Department will turn over all donated toys to our partner in this initiative; “Christmas Come True”. “Christmas Come True” is a local non-profit organization, 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:
