KPD Participates in Operation Chill
This summer, Killeen Police Officers will be dispensing well-deserved Slurpee® justice “tickets” to good kids in Killeen. For the 23rd year, 7-Eleven® is working with local police to distribute free Slurpee® drink coupons to children and youth through its popular Operation Chill® community-service program.
During 2018, up to 1.4 million Slurpee coupons will be issued to almost 1,100 law enforcement agencies; more than 1,100 of those will be distributed in Killeen, most during the summer months and back-to-school season.
Officers will be looking for kids who might be helping another person, deterring crime or participating in a positive activity in the community. Although the reasons for being “ticketed” are varied, the end result is the same for every youngster: a free Slurpee drink and a smiling kid. Each coupon can be redeemed for a small Slurpee drink at participating 7-Eleven stores.
“We are always looking for ways to help our officers build strong relationships in the community,” said Chief Charles Kimble. “Operation Chill makes it easy to interact with kids in a positive way.”
