6th Annual – “Toys for Tickets” Program

The Flagler Beach Police Department is proud to announce that our annual “Toys for Tickets” program will once again be repeated for the 2020 holiday season! Citizens who receive a warning citation for a traffic infraction or a parking offense can volunteer to participate in a program that truly benefits the youth of our community. Citizen participation in this program is 100% voluntary.

Beginning Sunday, November 1, 2020 and continuing through Thursday, December 10, 2020, Flagler Beach Police Department Officers, at their discretion, will be issuing "toy waivers" along with warning citations for non-criminal State traffic and/or City parking offenses. The “toy waiver” provides motorists with information on how to donate a new, unwrapped toy to the Police Department. At the end of the campaign the Police Department will turn over all donated toys to our partner in this initiative; “Christmas Come True”. “Christmas Come True” is a local non-profit organization, whose mission is “to provide a complete Christmas experience for area resident parents who are unable to financially afford a traditional Christmas for their families.” Motorists who voluntarily choose to participate in the program will be instructed to drop off a new, unwrapped toy, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at:

“2020 has been a very difficult year for all of us. We’re hoping this year’s efforts provide some needed assistance for motorists, while bringing joy to the children of our community.” stated Flagler Beach Police Chief Matt Doughney. “Over the past five (5) years our community has wholeheartedly embraced this program and we’re looking forward to a fantastic 2020 campaign.” Doughney continued. “Keeping our roadways safe during the holidays is our goal and this programs mantra of “paying it forward” is a great way to assist families in our community that could use some much needed help during the holidays.”

For additional information regarding this year’s program, please contact Chief Doughney at (386) 517-2020.
