PEORIA, AZ - As temperatures rise in the Valley the Peoria Police Department will be handing out free Slurpee coupons to local youth.
The Peoria Police Department partnered with a local 7-Eleven store to hand out the free coupons while the officers are on patrol as part of the "Operation Chill" program.
This offers the kids a free treat and also gives officers an opportunity to interact with local youth.
The "Operation Chill" program was started in 1995 by 7-Eleven and has partnered with officers across the country to hand out more than 12.5 million coupons. An additional one million coupons are expected to be handed out this year.
