The Saginaw Police Department will be taking part in “Operation Chill” this summer. It’s 7-Eleven’s signature community outreach program, designed to enhance relationships among stores, police and youth.
Operation Chill allows law enforcement officers to award a coupon to kids they see doing good deeds or exhibiting positive behavior – good for a free small Slurpee drink at any participating 7- Eleven store.
Saginaw Police Chief Bob Ruth said “These coupons are great for officers who are on patrol in the community. It’s an icebreaker, a way for us to interact with our youth in a non-threatening, non-law enforcement situation.”
