(ESPANOLA, ON) – Youth demonstrating positive actions, positive behaviour and showing acts of kindness toward others may earn themselves some well-deserved acknowledgment this winter. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is proud to be continuing its partnership with Circle K stores across Ontario again this year.
This year, Operation Heat Launch will be taking place on November 28, 2019, at approximately 11:15 a.m., in the Town of Espanola at the Circle K on Centre Street.
OPP officers will be on the lookout in communities across the province; and when they ‘catch’ a youth participating in an act of kindness, the youth will receive a ‘thank you’ given in the form of a free ‘ticket’ for hot chocolate at the Circle K.
A youth may receive a ‘Positive Ticket’ from an officer for a number of positive behaviours:
Doing a good deed;
Participating in community activities;
Demonstrating community pride ex) Picking up trash;
Deterring crime or observing school crossing rules; or
As an ‘icebreaker’ to establish a rapport with kids in their patrol area.
