This summer, Arlington Police officers will be dispensing well-deserved Slurpee justice to good kids in town. For the 23rd year, 7-Eleven is working with local police and sheriff's departments to distribute free Slurpee drink coupons to youth through its popular Operation Chill community-service program.
"The coupons are a great way for our officers to encourage engagement with the youth of Arlington in a non-law enforcement situation," stated Arlington Police Chief Jonathan Ventura. "Operation Chill makes it easy to interact with kids in a positive way."
Arlington Police officers will be awarding coupons to youth in the community for good deeds, constructive activities, and acts of kindness. Although the reasons for being "ticketed" are varied, the end result is the same for every youngster: a free Slurpee drink and a smile for being a good kid. Each coupon can be redeemed for a small Slurpee drink at participating 7-Eleven stores.
