Tickets for Good Behavior
Since 1996, the 7-Eleven Corporation has sponsored Operation Chill which is a program that allows law enforcement officers to “ticket” youngsters 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 7-Eleven store.
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 additional uses for the coupons may include rewarding kids for wearing their bicycle helmets, doing good deeds, participating in community activities, picking up trash, deterring crime, or observing any state or local law. The coupons offer an ideal way to establish rapport with kids in the communities we patrol.
