Get caught, get a D.Q. treat
The local Dairy Queen restaurants, along with AAA and Chisago County sheriff’s department, are coordinating efforts providing treats to children who are nabbed in the “I Got Caught” positive behavior rewards program.

Again this summer area patrol cars will be stocked   with coupons for a free DQ small ice cream cone.  Law enforcement will hand out coupons to kids who are doing something right...for instance, wearing their bike helmet.

Coupon-giving is at the discretion of the deputy/officer.  The free cone coupons expire end of 2018.
