Operation Chill rewards good behavior

If a Collier deputy catches your child in the act, they might just get a “ticket.”

The CCSO is again participating in 7-Eleven’s Operation Chill, a program that aims to reduce crime and build rapport between kids and law enforcement.

If a deputy spots a child wearing a helmet, picking up trash or observing crosswalk rules, he or she could get a “ticket” for a free, small Slurpee at 7-Eleven.

Hundreds of agencies around the country have participated in the program since it began in 1995.

Youth Relations Bureau Captain Beth Jones said Operation Chill is a great way to develop relationships with the youth in the community, while teaching the importance of making good decisions, being kind and doing the right thing.

So be on your best behavior – our deputies will be patrolling parks, community events and summer camps looking to hand out these free treats!
