SPS To Launch Operation Freeze In Partnership With Mac’s/Circle K Convenience Stores

The Saskatoon Police Service is proud to partner with Mac’s/Circle K Convenience stores to launch Operation Freeze here in Saskatoon.

Operation Freeze is a Canada-wide positive ticketing program which partners Police Services and Mac’s/Circle K Convenience Stores. The program rewards youth exhibiting positive behaviour with complimentary coupons for cold beverages in the summer and hot drinks in the winter.

“This is a great opportunity for officers to recognize positive behaviour and build relationships with youth in our community,” says Inspector Randy Huisman. “Engaging our community, especially youth, only helps to empower them to make a positive difference.”

The Saskatoon Police Service is dedicated to working with a wide range of organizations and community groups to develop strategies that contribute to a safe and secure community. The Positive Ticketing program supports community policing by providing an opportunity to have a conversation with youth and to reinforce a positive interaction between them and police.

“We are very pleased to partner with Saskatoon Police and to have the opportunity to be part of a positive impact in our community by rewarding youth recognized by Police,” says Sherry Coey, Security and Loss Prevention Manager with Mac’s / Circle K Convenience Stores.

Members of the public and media are invited to attend the Mac’s Convenience Store located at 25th Street and 3rd Avenue for the unveiling of a mural and launch of Operation Freeze at 1 p.m., July 31, 2018. Members of both organizations will be available for interviews.
