BRIMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio — A local police chief who has been known for his tongue-in-cheek open letters to criminals is now opening up about another policy of sorts.
As written on the department’s Facebook page, Brimfield officers are encouraged to write as many tickets as they can and should also target a specific group.
“My officers will have a quota for tickets … at least one per shift. We are going to be profiling, too,” Chief David Oliver wrote last week. “We will target a specific group, with the express purpose of writing as many tickets as possible. I am strongly encouraging my officers to write as many as they can, every shift, every day … it is called Operation Safe Summer.”
According to Oliver, officers will be on the lookout for children under the age of 12 who are wearing a helmet while biking.
