Prince Albert youth may start seeking out police officers in hopes of getting caught. 

Prince Albert police are handing out tickets for those caught doing good this month. 

Children can get a free hamburger for following the rules, such as crossing the street safely or picking up litter. 

"Once they realize they are receiving a positive ticket for doing something good. It seems then that they calm right down and then they are appreciative," said Const. Rob Lindsay with the Prince Albert police service. 

Lindsay said he is hoping it will change how youth perceive the police. 

"Hopefully it will give them a chance to come be more approachable to us, communicate with us and talk to us as well down the road," he said. 

Those who go above and beyond can even be entered into a draw to win free tickets to the movies or a P.A. Raiders WHL game.
