Operation Chill: Sarasota County deputies will give “tickets” to children doing good deeds

Operation Chill Summer

SARASOTA (WWSB) - Do you know a child who is doing a good deed? Mowing a neighbors lawn, paying for some else’s snacks when they come up short at the gas station?

Well, this summer the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office have a new initiative called Operation Chill. This program allows deputies to give “tickets” to children doing good deeds.

Deputies are partnering with 7-Eleven stores and kids caught helping other people, deterring crime or participating in positive activities will get a coupon that they can redeem at the 7-Eleven store for a small slurpee.

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office was at the Boys and Girls Club in Sarasota County rewarding some of the kids there who where doing positive things.
