The Laurel Police Department has once again teamed up with 7-Eleven to reward your children for their good behavior this summer.

Operation Chill is now underway.

Youngsters spotted doing good will be "ticketed" with a free coupon for a medium-sized Slurpee at 7-Eleven.

Encourage your children to wear their bike helmets, help a neighbor, or just strike up a friendly conversation with a Police Officer.

This is the 22nd year for the program which was started as a way to reduce crime and build rapport between kids and law enforcement.

And that Slurpee will taste so good in this heat! Enjoy!
