CAUGHT COLD-HANDED!

Addison Police Reward Good Kids with Free Slurpee® Coupons

Kids caught red-handed doing good deeds in Addison may find themselves cold-handed as a result, holding a free Slurpee® drink. Addison Police officers will be handing out free Slurpee coupons this summer through Operation Chill™, 7-Eleven® stores’ popular community service program.

Through Operation Chill, Addison Police officers will be giving “tickets” to youngsters who are caught in random acts of kindness or good deeds with free Slurpee coupons. Appropriate “offenses” might include helping another person, wearing a bicycle helmet while riding or skateboarding, deterring crime or participating in a positive activity in the community.

“Addison police officers sometimes need a positive reason to interact with children and youth, and giving kids free Slurpee coupons for doing good is a great way to build a relationship,” said Sergeant Cathy Hundley. “Recognizing kids with a favorite summertime treat is a great conversation icebreaker and can reinforce good conduct, which might have a long-lasting impact.”

Since the program’s inception in 1995, more than 12.5 million Operation Chill coupons have been distributed to law enforcement agencies across the country where 7-Eleven operates stores. During the upcoming summer months and back-to-school season, good kids in more than 600 neighborhoods, cities, towns and counties will receive free Slurpee coupons.
