Police Team Up With 7-Eleven
Evesham Towhship Police are offering up a tasty reward for staying cool. They’re partnering with 7-Eleven on a Community Policing Project called Operation Chill, which is designed to enhance relations between police and youth. The program allows law enforcement officers to “ticket” kids they observe doing good deeds or exhibiting positive behavior. The ticket is actually a coupon good for a free 12-oz. Slurpee® at any participating store.
The Evesham Township Police department says the interactions help to promote a trusting relationship by giving officers the opportunity to interact in a “non-enforcement” situation. “We understand the importance a positive a police/community relationship and are always looking for ways to increase our outreach,” says Chief Christopher Chew.
Operation Chill has grown to include more than 900 local law enforcement agencies in the United States and Canada. More than 15 million coupons have been distributed to officers on the beat in cities and towns where 7‑Eleven does business. The program will run from April 15th, 2018 through the end of the year.
