Waterloo Region, Ontario – With summer well underway, youth in Waterloo Region will have the chance to be given a cool treat from the Waterloo Regional Police Service (WRPS).
With the return of Operation Freeze, WRPS members will be on the lookout for youth demonstrating good behaviours and positive interactions. Once spotted, members will give the youth a cool treat coupon. These coupons can then be taken to any Circle K convenience store to be redeemed for a free Froster drink.
“The youth are a very important part of the diverse makeup of Waterloo Region,” said Bryan Larkin, Chief of Police. “This is a great opportunity to partner with local businesses to engage our youth and recognize their positive contributions throughout Waterloo Region.”
Officers will issue coupons to any young person they see doing a good deed, such as wearing a bike helmet, picking up garbage, or offering help to someone in need. The program is a way to acknowledge responsible and caring actions by Waterloo Region youth and build positive relationships between youth and the police.
Operation Freeze is made possible through a partnership with Waterloo Region Crime Stoppers and Circe K convenience stores.
The program will run until the end of summer.
