Grover Beach police officers “ticketed” four kids who were riding their bikes on Tuesday.
Here’s a twist: the kids were wearing helmets and riding safely. And the tickets were for their good behavior.
It’s part of “Operation Chill” a community service program through 7-Eleven where law enforcement agencies distribute free Slurpee coupons to kids. The coupons are a reward for good deeds, positive activities and acts of kindness, according to a news release.
