Sioux Center Police Chief Paul Adkins says instead of a ticket, the good drivers get free ice cream.

Adkins says they had done a similar program years ago and at the suggestion of another officer, Adkins thought it might be a good time to bring it back.

Adkins says he’s only heard one second hand complaint about the program, and that person was concerned about probable cause.

So if you’re in Sioux Center and you see those familiar red and blue lights in your rear view mirror, it may mean some free ice cream instead of a traffic ticket.
