“Operation Heat” will run through the rest of the winter before changing to “Operation Freeze” for the spring and summer months.
Calgary Police have partnered with Circle K for it's “Positive Ticketing” program, which launched Monday coinciding with the return to school.
The goal of the program is to reward young people if they're following COVID protocols, wearing a helmet, or showing an act of kindness.
S/Sgt. Ralph Veckenstedt joined Windspeaker Radio to talk about the program.
Once issued, the tickets can be redeemed at a local Circle K convenience store for a free beverage.
