BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - This summer, children will have the chance to earn a free Slurpee while having positive interactions with law enforcement officers from Berkeley Heights Police Department. Starting July 5, 2018, Berkeley Heights Police Department Officers will "ticket" juveniles by rewarding them for good deeds, bicycle safety, constructive activities and acts of kindness.
Appropriate "offenses" might include helping another person or participating in a community or police-sponsored event. Although the reasons for being "ticketed" are varied, the end result is the same for every youngster, a free Slurpee drink and a smile for being a good kid.
The Berkeley Heights Community Policing Division is always looking for ways to reach out and continue to build on our strong relationship within our community and this program makes it easy for officers to interact with kids in a positive way.
The Berkeley Heights Police Department would ike to thank 7-Eleven for their support through facilitating important relationships and positive connections in our community. Each coupon can be redeemed for a medium Slurpee drink at 7-Eleven located in Berkeley Heights on Springfield Avenue.
