Free ice cream cones entice the average person but add a chance to hang with local cops and it’s a winner! Residents showed up in droves recently for the McDonald's Cones with Cops event at their Custer and McDermott Road store.
Plano Police Officers John Bauer and Chris Bianez, along with Sergeant Wes Gerig were on hand to spend quality time with the patrons.
Local McDonald's owner, Chuck O’Reilley, said in a WFAA interview, “Cones with Cops is a great way to give back to the community, and foster friendship and communication. The event also helps children get a better understanding of what first responders like the police do.” Officer Bianez appeared on the news segment:
Officer Bauer said, “The event was a huge success! It was our first time being involved with the program. We talked with hundreds of parents and their kids about safety as they enjoyed the free cones.”
