I Got Caught - Safe Kids Minnesota

Rewarding Youth for Wearing Helmets

The Polk County Sheriff's Office participates in the I Got Caught Youth program. We offer positive reinforcement and reward helmet use among the local youth in partnership with:

  •  AAA
  • Dairy Queen
  • The Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association
  • The Minnesota Sheriffs Association
  • Safe Kids Minnesota

I Got Caught rewards youth who wear helmets while riding a bicycle, scooter, skateboard, or inline skates.


Youth "caught" wearing a helmet are rewarded with a "citation" for a free ice cream cone at participating Dairy Queen Restaurants!
