Turn Someone in for Good Character
Officer Byron Fausset responded to a call Wednesday, November 14, to hand a
citation to the Hempstead City Secretary, Barbara Haffelfinger. For showing the
good character quality of punctuality, she received complimentary coupons from
Jack in the Box and Pizza Hut as a reward.
These rewards will be given by the Hempstead Police Department when a citizen
"turns someone in" for showing the character quality being featured the current
month. Hempstead citizens simply need to call the Police Department (826-8838)
to do so.
The character rewards program is an incentive from the Character Council of
Hempstead, a group made up of residents who believe that good character can
make a difference in the community. The Council was formed at the request of
Mayor Michael Wolfe and the City Council to promote awareness in Hempstead of
the importance of good character.
Each month, a new character quality will be featured on a two-page insert in the
Hotline Press, on signs located at entrances to the city, and on the Character
Council's website: www.hempsteadcityofcharacter.com. The Council is
encouraging organizations, businesses, and families to sign up as "Character
