RIVERSIDE – Getting a ticket is not always a bad thing – if the citation comes with a Slurpee.  

Through the Riverside Police Department's Operation Chill program, children caught doing good this summer may be issued a "ticket" from participating police and sheriff's departments to receive a free Slurpee from participating 7-Eleven stores. 

Coupons may be issued for good acts that include anything from deterring crime, to wearing a bicycle helmet. 

Each coupon can be redeemed for a small Slurpee.
