Kilgore Police have embarked on a mission of great importance. This mission could become a little sticky if not handled properly. This mission, however, will not leave a bad taste in anyone's mouth.

Kilgore Police have launched "Operation Snow Cone." As Kilgore police patrol the city, they will look for kids doing good deeds or with good behavior and reward them with a free snow cone.

Me: "I helped a lady cross the street, can I get one?"

Officer: "You're 39, sir."

Me: "So. I like snow cones, too."

Officer: "This is for the kids, sir. Please stop begging."

The department is hoping this will help officers build a good relationship with the kids according to

The kids are given a coupon for a free snow cone, any flavor, at Charlie's Snoball & Seasonal Tanning in Kilgore.
