The Weekly Briefing – Operation Sting

Chief Bodine hopes to hand out a lot of tickets this summer


by Corrin Binford - May 30, 2014

The Wellsboro Police Department has partnered with Peggy’s Candies in order to promote their new STING program in the community. In order to keep school a fun, safe and positive environment, students are encouraged to remember STING: a guide to a positive school environment. Children who are caught around town by local police doing the right thing will receive a ticket for free ice cream. This program applies to any child with exemplary behavior, both visitors and residents.

What does STING mean?

Speak Appropriately

  • Remember to use your manners when speaking
  • Speak positively and kindly
  • Think before you speak or react
  • Avoid vulgar language

Think Positively

  • Believe in yourself and others
  • Make the best of every situation
  • Be aware of your impact on others
  • Encourage others to try new things, accept differences and be authentic

Inspire Others

  • Set good examples – someone might look up to you
  • Be the face of a leader
  • Include everyone in activities
  • Go the extra mile – do something “just because” and without being asked

Notice Actions

  • Be aware of what’s going on around you
  • Acknowledge positive behaviors in others
  • Report any concerns to an adult
  • Take actions to meet others needs

Go Hornets! – Take pride in your school

  • Respect your teachers, principals, all adults and other students
  • Be supportive of all school programs
  • Participate in Theme Weeks
  • Represent your school with class

The STING program will begin once school is out for the summer.
