Click It or Ticket

The annual Click It Or Ticket campaign started on Monday and this year the Cuyahoga County Safe Communities Coalition and participating police departments have a unique way to get out their buckle up message – painted rocks.  Building on the rock painting and hiding phenomenon, the Cuyahoga County Safe Communities Coalition partnered with Brook Park Police Department and Ford Intermediate to come up with this creative and engaging way to spread an important safety message.

The students at Ford Intermediate have been hard at work painting hundreds of rocks and personalizing each of them with a seat belt message.  Police departments throughout the county received decorated rocks to be hidden throughout their communities with a goal of residents finding them, sharing the message on social media, and rehiding for someone else to find and do the same.  Those who find the rocks are encouraged to post their findings on the Cuyahoga County Safe Communities Facebook page  The objective is simple:  find a rock, share your find on social media, and rehide the rock to do your part to spread the buckle up message.  If you are interested in getting rocks to hide in your community (or getting more rocks), contact Rachel Farinelli at 216-983-1107 or
