The Cleveland Police Department is rolling out the newest addition to its fleet of vehicles, but this one doesn't have flashing lights and you won't see a felon riding in the back. That's because it's an ice cream truck – and it's driving around town handing out free ice cream to residents.
The free frozen treats are part of Cleveland's "Safe Summer 2017" initiative and is intended to help residents, especially kids, enjoy a safe summer. It also helps to build a more positive relationship between residents and police officers.
The police department's "Let's Chill Together" truck is loaded up each day with ice cream donated by local businesses. It then drives around neighborhoods looking for people who look like they could use a cool treat.
