WRPS & Waterloo Region Crime Stoppers Partner with Circle K Convenience Stores for Operation Freeze

Media Release

Waterloo Region, Ontario – With summer well underway, youth in Waterloo Region will have the chance to be given a cool treat from the Waterloo Regional Police Service (WRPS).

With the return of Operation Freeze, WRPS officers will be on the lookout for youth demonstrating good behaviours and positive interactions. Once spotted, officers will give the youth a cool treat coupon. These coupons can then be taken to any Circle K convenience store to be redeemed for a free Froster drink.

Officers will issue coupons to any young person they see doing a good deed, such as wearing a bike helmet, picking up garbage, doing volunteer work, or offering help to someone in need. The program is a way to acknowledge responsible and caring actions by Waterloo Region youth.

“We are excited to once again partner with Waterloo Region Crime Stoppers and Circe K convenience stores to launch Operation Freeze,” said Mark Crowell, Chief of Police. “It’s a great way for officers to interact with young community members, encourage positive relationships, and build a stronger community.”

The program will run until the end of summer.
