Buffalo Grove Police Giving out Coupons for Free Slurpees®
This summer, Buffalo Grove Police Officers will be dispensing well-deserved Slurpee® justice to area youth. For the 26th year, 7-Eleven® is partnering with local police departments to distribute free Slurpee® drink coupons to children through the popular Operation Chill® community service program.
Buffalo Grove Police use the Slurpee® coupons to enhance relationships with young people in the community by rewarding them for good deeds, constructive activities and acts of kindness. Appropriate ‘offenses’ could include helping others, deterring crime, wearing a bike helmet and other acts of safety, or participating in a community- or police-sponsored event.
“Being rewarded for positive behaviors can foster better and more trustworthy relationships between our local children and our police officers,” said Buffalo Grove Police Chief Steven Casstevens. “One of the Department’s goals is to continue to build on our successes by building bridges with our community, and this is one way to accomplish that goal.”
Although the reasons for being ‘ticketed’ are varied, the result is the same for every youngster; a free Slurpee® drink and a smile, as a direct result of their positive behavior and actions. Each coupon can be redeemed for a small Slurpee® drink at participating 7-Eleven® stores.
