San Rafael Police Department participates in Operation Chill

This summer, San Rafael police officers will be dispensing well-deserved Slurpee justice to good kids in our community. For the 22nd year, 7-Eleven is working with local police and sheriff’s departments to distribute free Slurpee drink coupons to children and youth through its popular Operation Chill community-service program.

The program allows law enforcement officers to “ticket” youth they observe doing good deeds or exhibiting positive behavior. The ticket is actually a coupon good for a free small Slurpee at any participating 7-Eleven store.

Operation Chill began in Philadelphia to give law enforcement officers a positive reason to interact with children and teens, it has since expanded across the country. Since the program’s inception in 1995, more than 19 million Operation Chill coupons have been distributed to hundreds of law enforcement agencies across the country in areas where 7-Eleven operates stores.

Wear your helmet, wear your seat belt, do a good deed, get a Slurpee.
