Description automatically generated
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with 7-Eleven, Inc. in the 28th consecutive year of “Operation Chill®.” The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office and 7-Eleven want to reward local kids through the company’s community outreach program.
This summer, as our deputies’ patrol neighborhoods, they will keep an eye out for youth doing great things.  Some acts include kids wearing safety helmets while riding a bike or skateboard, kids observing safety rules while crossing the street, kids participating in positive activities, kids holding the door open for someone, kids picking up trash, or kids helping someone in need. If observed, our deputies and professional staff, at any of our stations in the county, will make a positive contact with the youth and issue an Operation Chill coupon.  The coupons can be redeemed for a free small Slurpee drink at any participating 7-Eleven®, Speedway®, or Stripes® store.
This year, 7-Eleven will issue nearly 500,000 coupons to more than 1,300 participating law enforcement agencies across the country, including the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. With the program new to Speedway, this summer will mark the first-time kids will be able to redeem their Operation Chill coupons at their local Speedway store as well.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office looks forward to recognizing the good deeds being done by the youth in our communities daily. We have a lot of great kids in our communities and we have a lot of Slurpee coupons to hand out. This program allows us to continue to build trust and relationships with the communities we serve. We are better at what we do because of our community partnerships.
