Brantford police are teaming up with a local ice cream shop this summer to reward youth who are caught in the act of a good deed.
The Brantford Police Service (BPS) is joining forces with Dairee Delite to launch “Operation Delite”, a project meant to reinforce positive behaviour in youth in the community.
This summer, police officers will hand out coupons to youth who are seen doing good deeds. The coupons can be redeemed exclusively at Dairee Delite for a free ice cream or yogurt cone.
Examples of good deeds include demonstrating community pride, helping a friend or participating in community activities.
Officers will also recognize when youth are practicing personal safety such as wearing bicycle helmets and observing road crossing rules.
“This program is a great way to foster a sense of community and build relationships with our youngest citizens,” said Robin Matthews-Osmond, Corporate Communications Manager for Brantford Police Service.
Dairee Delite first opened its doors in Brantford in 1953 and is launching “Operation Delite” to celebrate their 70th anniversary this year.
“Dariee Delite is thrilled to partner with the Brantford Police Service to help support the community who supports us,” said Sarah Disher-Neddow, owner of Dairee Delite.
Police say “Operation Delite” will run all summer long.
