Commerce City Police Department to “ticket” kids for good deeds

Starting May 1, the Commerce City Police Department is teaming up with 7-Eleven stores to rewards kids with a free Slurpee® drink for appropriate “offenses,” as part of 7-Eleven's Operation Chill®.

For the 21st year, 7-Eleven is partnering with law enforcement agencies across the country to distribute free Slurpee® drink coupons through Operation Chill®, its popular community service program which reinforces positive behaviors in city youth and establishes a rapport with officers to reduce crime.

“This is an opportunity for officers to enhance relations with the kids in the city by rewarding them for good deeds, positive activities and acts of kindness,” said Deputy Chief Clint Nichols. “It’s an icebreaker, a way to encourage dialogue in a non-threatening, non-law enforcement situation.”

Appropriate “offenses” might include helping another person, deterring crime, or participating in a positive activity in the community. Each coupon can be redeemed for a small Slurpee® drink at participating 7-Eleven stores.

During 2016, up to 1.28 million coupons will be issued nationally; 1,500 of those will be distributed in Commerce City mostly during the summer months and back-to-school season.

For more information about Operation Chill®, contact Deputy Chief Clint Nichols at 303-727-3919 or cnichols@c3gov.com. Learn more about the police department at c3gov.com/police.
