Getting cited by the police doesn't always have to be a bad thing in Pierce Township.  Police Chief Jeff Bachman said his men have added a new type of ticket to their arsenal: A yellow slip recognizing the actions of residents who take time to do the right thing for others. "You'll get a call from maybe a disabled motorist, someone with a flat tire, and you pull up and someone is already changing that tire," Bachman said.  Those are the people the new golden tickets, each of which comes with a $10 Walmart gift card, will honor. Bachman said he hoped the initiative would inject some happiness into his community and help people connect with police in a positive way. "We see a lot of negativity on the news, in our job, but why not accent the positive?" he said. "People do good things."
