Law Enforcement Partnership

Lights On! partners with law enforcement agencies to help improve police-community relations and public safety. Rather than writing a ticket, officers are able to provide a voucher for a free car bulb replacement at a participating local auto shop, turning a traffic stop into a positive exchange.

Start A Program

Partnership with local law enforcement is what drives the success of Lights On! By joining forces with over 150 other agencies around the country, you are demonstrating that you want to build bridges, create safer roads, and better the lives of people in your community.

Want to start a program in your area? Get in contact with us. For Minnesota law enforcement agencies, joining Lights On! only requires a verbal commitment. For out-of-state agencies, we do require a written commitment. Please contact us for more details.

Together we are stabilizing lives and fostering safe communities—we hope you join us!

He had, you know, a little bit of attitude, kind of like, ‘why are you stopping me.’ I informed him about the headlight being out, and his attitude really changed when I gave them the voucher.
