New Milford Police launch 'Operation Good Citizen' to reward kids for good behavior

The New Milford Police Department is partnering the Hobby Hangout to catch kids doing something right and rewarding them for their positive actions. The new community policing program, Operation Good Citizen, encourages officers to make positive contacts and to acknowledge the many good things that young citizens do on a daily basis.

The owner of the Hobby Hangout, John Gallagher, has pledged to support the program by donating “Good Citizen” passes, to be handed out by officers. These passes allow kids to use a specially designed New Milford Police radio controlled truck on their racetrack. 

Chief Spencer Cerruto wants to continue to expand the program to include other organizations and businesses in the community. Good behavior examples include wearing a helmet while biking or skateboarding, using the crosswalks, speaking respectfully, helping others in need, doing well in school and community service. 

Cerruto says the passes are a gateway to building trust, respect and relationships.
