Tri-Cities law enforcement agencies working to support youth in the community

TRI-CITIES, Wash. — Two local law enforcement agencies in the Tri-Cities are working to support youth in the community.

The Pasco Police Department recently announced on Facebook that they are working on “7-11 Project A Game.”

“[It’s] a community outreach program created to provide meaningful youth development through education and play so children establish a strong foundation that supports their future success,” the post said. “The Pasco Police Explorers unit received a 2,000 dollar grant that will help pay for academy tuition.”

The Richland Police Department also posted to Facebook, introducing that “7-Eleven’s “Operation Chill” is back!”

“Each summer, the RPD partners with 7-Eleven to reward kids in our community for doing good deeds or exhibiting positive and safe behaviors by handing out free “Slurpee” coupons,” the post said. “RPD officers will be handing out these coupons any time we see kids wearing bike helmets, using crosswalks, helping others, or making a positive impact in the community.”
