CPD Kicks Off Fiss’ Tix Program

The Carlisle Police Department’s Fiss’ Tix program is starting for the summer! While out on patrol, officers will be on the lookout for kids wearing bicycle helmets, looking both ways before crossing the street and using bicycle hand signals. If “caught” violators will get a “ticket” for a FREE ice cream cone at Fiss’!

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!…….. Be sure to fill out the back with the child’s name and phone number when you redeem it and at the end of the summer we will draw a winner to receive a voucher for a new bicycle! We would like to thank Fiss’ for their continued partnership of this great program!
