Police partner with 7-Eleven to catch local kids in the act

 

The James City County Police Department and 7-Eleven are looking to catch local kids in the act of doing good deeds in the community. Once apprehended, Operation Chill allows police officers to give the culprit one of more than 1,400 tickets for a free small Slurpee® beverage.

 

In addition to rewarding good behavior by youth, Operation Chill offers opportunities for officers to interface with youngsters in a non-law-enforcement situation. Some officers use the coupons to reward kids for wearing bicycle helmets, doing good deeds, participating in community activities and organizations, picking up trash, deterring crime or observing school rules. Others use the coupons as icebreakers to establish a rapport with kids in a neighborhood, or as an incentive for participating in school safety programs.
