Update:The “Give a Cop a Ticket” drive has now shifted it focus to donating to the local domestic violence shelter. After speaking with the Idaho Falls Police Department Millie Boucha discovered the officers couldn’t receive the tickets for legal reasons. Rather than end the drive Boucha has shifted her focus to donating to the domestic violence shelter. All money raised in the drive will be donated to the shelter in the name of the Idaho Falls Police Department.
Original Story: An Idaho Falls woman wants to give every officer in the Idaho Falls Police Department a night at the movies.
Millie Boucha started a GoFundMe account called “Give a Cop a Ticket.” The goal is to raise enough money to give each officer two tickets to the movie theater.
“Do something for the police officers because it seems like right now their kind of having a rough time. Kind of having bad feelings towards them and they (the public) don’t trust them as much. We don’t feel that way at all so we wanted to show our officers here that we’re behind them,” said Boucha.
So far Boucha’s GoFundMe page has raised $200, the last date to donate is December 15.
Boucha also says she would like to raise enough money to give movie tickets to other police departments.
