Ticket Amnesty

Michael O’Beirne, assistant director of Campus Safety, stands with canned goods and pet food items donated during Trine University’s first Parking Ticket Amnesty, held March 11. On that day, students were allowed to have up to two parking citations dismissed, except for handicapped parking or fire lane violations, if they brought in either a bag of non-perishable food items of pet supplies for each citation they wanted dismissed. Fifty-three students took advantage of the program, donating more than 60 bags of supplies. Campus Safety officers transported the food items to Project Help of Steuben County and the pet items to the Community Humane Shelter of Steuben County.

“We feel that this is a great program that offered students the opportunity to clear the slate on past mistakes while helping others in the community,” said Keith Hefner, director of Campus Safety at Trine. “This also helped us strengthen the positive relationship between Campus Safety and our great students.”
