COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.-- The Collier County Sheriff's office is again participating in 7-Eleven's Operation Chill, a program that aims to reduce crime and build rapport between kids and law enforcement.

If a deputy spots a child wearing a helmet, picking up trash or observing crosswalk rules, he or she could get a "ticket" for a free, small Slurpee at 7-Eleven.

Youth Relations Bureau Captain Beth Jones said Operation Chill is a great way to develop relationships with the youth in the community, while teaching the importance of making good decisions, being kind and doing the right thing.
