Brampton - Recognizing the importance of supporting a child's thirst for knowledge, Operation Freeze 2013 is a partnership with Mac's Convenience Stores encouraging kids to learn that "doing the right thing" is also the "cool thing to do".
This Positive Ticketing initiative will allow officers to engage young people who are observed doing random acts of kindness or exhibiting positive behaviour. The ticket is actually a coupon valid for a free 710 ml Froster beverage at all participating Mac's stores across Ontario.
“Mac’s Convenience Stores are excited to once again partner with the Peel Regional Police on an initiative that empowers our youth to make a positive difference in the community” said Sean Sportun, ICPS - Manager, Loss Prevention & Security for Mac's in Central Canada “We have made Crime Prevention an integral part of our corporate responsibility; demonstrating our continued commitment to the overall safety of the community – Operation Freeze is a perfect fit with our vision”
The Peel Regional Police is pleased to participate in this highly successful initiative that recognizes youth for responsible and caring behaviour. Partnering with local business and engaging our youth in a positive manner builds partnerships that make our communities stronger.
In addition to recognizing good behaviour by youth, Operation Freeze 2013 offers opportunities for police officers to interact with youth in a positive manner. In support of the Positive Ticketing Program, some police officers may again use the coupons to recognize youth for wearing bicycle helmets, doing good deeds, participating in community activities, picking up trash, deterring crime or observing school crossing rules - while others may use the coupons as literal "icebreakers" to establish a rapport with kids in their patrol area. The intention is to ensure that the "Positive Tickets" legitimately reinforce the positive behaviour exhibited by a youth, by offering something of value.
Since the introduction of the Mac’s Positive Ticketing Program in the summer of 2007, more than 800,000 Operation Freeze and Operation Heat coupons have been strategically issued by police officers to recognize and motivate Ontario's youth for positive behaviour.
