Posted:
WACO -

The Waco Police Department donated bikes to Waco ISD for their new incentive attendance program.

These bikes are stolen, unclaimed bikes that were recovered by police. They sit in a warehouse and if nobody claims them, they normally get sold for scrap or auctioned off.

Waco ISD will be giving out items for students with perfect attendance, such as TVs, iPads and bikes. Waco Sport has also agreed to fix up the damaged bikes at no cost.

"To see movements and incentives to help student stay involved and participate I think is a great thing and so we are excited to be behind that," said Trinity Robb, Waco Sport General Manager.

Sgt. Patrick Swanton with Waco Police, says these bikes will be going to a good cause.

"To be able to provide a good reward with some kids who are doing the right thing and trying to keep on the straight and narrow path and show them there is a positive out come to them doing the right thing," said Swanton.

During the first six weeks of school, 11,000 Waco ISD secondary students had perfect attendance, which is slightly up from last year.
