COPPERAS COVE, TEXAS – On Saturday, June 30, 2018 Officers from the Copperas Cove Police Department will be at Waffle Cone, 508 Cove Terrace from 12:00pm to 3:00pm, for our inaugural Cone with a Cop Event. For the event Waffle Cone is supplying free Ice cream to children age 12 and under.
The mission of Cone with a Cop is to allow our young citizens to interact with our officers in a friendly relaxed environment. Too often our young citizens see us in stressful or volatile situations and we are not afforded the opportunity to spend time with them during those encounters. We are excited about the opportunity to have this event to intermingle with our young citizens in a fun upbeat atmosphere.
KIDDO cards will be available during this event as well. The KIDDO Card is a child identification card created to identify a child 12 years of age or younger. The card will contain the child’s full name, date of birth, sex, hair color, eye color, height, weight, parent/guardian’s name, address, and a current photo. The card is designed to be maintained by the parent/guardian to identify a child if necessary, NOT to be held by a child as a form of selfidentification. Children are abducted across our nation every day and the vital information is necessary for law enforcement officers to start their search.
We hope Cone with a Cop helps build relationships, one cone at a time. Similar events have been very successful due to the support of our local community. We would like to personally invite our citizens to once again join us in this community building event.
