LUBBOCK, Texas — Once again, United Supermarkets will team up with local law enforcement agencies across Texas for the ‘Cops 4 Kids’ initiative throughout the summer and year.
The ‘Cops 4 Kids’ initiative, which began four years ago, was initially developed to promote positive interactions between children and police officers. United Supermarkets supplies local law enforcement officers with coupons for a free coke or Icee at United Express locations. The police officers then hand them out while they are in the community.
“As we all know, law enforcement is a vital part of any community,” said Marcus Young, director of asset protection for The United Family. “There is no better time than now for law enforcement to strengthen their bonds with the community. The United Family wants to be a part of that. We hope these coupons open up opportunities that create positive communication.”
