LEBANON, OR (KPTV) -

Officers in one Oregon city are issuing a new kind of ticket.

Lebanon Police Department officers are looking for "offenders" who are performing good deeds.

When caught in the act, the positive perpetrators will receive a good deed ticket.

The good deeds don't have to be dramatic. Officers are looking for people driving properly, using turn signals or pedestrians using crosswalks and yielding at sidewalks.

Every do-gooder who receives a good deed ticket will be able to use it at one of three Lebanon locations – Big Town Hero, 1847 Bar and Grill or The Growler Café – for up to $10 off their meal.

Dr. Adam Kirkpatrick of Lebanon donated $500 for the program, so 50 people will receive the initial batch of good deed tickets.

Each ticket can be used one time only and every ticket will have an expiration date.

The Lebanon Police Department said the program offers officers a positive way to engage with the community.

"It is small things like this that can make a big difference in someone's life," according to a police department release. "So in Lebanon, it might be a good thing to get a ticket, a good deed ticket that is."
