Cone with a Cop
COPPERAS COVE, TEXAS– On Saturday, July 2, 2022, from 11:00am to 2:00pm, Officers from the Copperas Cove Police Department will be at Waffle Cone, 508 Cove Terrace for our 4thannual 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 the opportunity to interact with officers in a friendly relaxed environment. Children frequently see us in an enfor cement capacity 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 to the first 150 children during this event. The KIDDO Card is a child identification card created to identify a child 12 year s of age or younger. The card will contain thechild’sful lname,dateofbirth,sex,haircolor,eyecolor,height,weight, parent/guardian’sname,address,andacurrentphoto.Thecardisdesignedtobe maintained by the parent/guardian to identify a child if necessary, N OT to be held by a child as a form of s elf-identification. Children are abducted across our nationevery 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
