Bulls, Police Launch “You’ve Been Ticketed” Campaign
Program Supports City’s National Night Out Observance

National Night Out logo The Durham Bulls in conjunction with the City of Durham Police Department have announced a new program called “You’ve Been Ticketed” to promote good citizenry among Durham’s youth.

During June and July, police officers will be looking out for children performing good deeds in their community. If discovered, the child will get a ticket from the officer. Not a ticket to pay a fine or appear in court, but a ticket to a Durham Bulls Baseball Game! Each ticket awarded will be good for the National Night Out Kickoff at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park on Monday, July 31st when the Bulls take on the Rochester Red Wings at 7:00pm.

“We are very appreciative of the Durham Bull’s generosity and support of the Durham Police Department’s crime prevention and community-oriented policing initiatives,” says Kimberle Walker, Police Department Public Relations Coordinator. “When corporate citizens, like the Durham Bulls, are engaged in civic issues and promote good citizenship, it speaks to their commitment to the community and community spirit.”

Walker adds that the department’s Crime Prevention Unit will be working with local youth agencies to identify deserving ticket recipients.

The National Night Out kickoff event at the Bull’s July 31st game is organized to highlight crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs; and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.
