RICHLAND, Wash. - Richland police will be on the lookout this summer to catch kids who are doing good deeds.

The Richland Police Department is again working with 7-Eleven over the summer season for "Operation Chill", which rewards kids who practice positive and safe behaviors.

Officers say they will hand out hundreds of free "Slurpee" coupons to kids they see wearing bike helmets, using crosswalks, helping others or any other positive act making the community a better place to live.

The department partners with 7-Eleven each year to encourage kids who do good in the community.
