The City of Boston unveiled a new addition to its fleet — an ice cream truck. The Ford truck is part of the law enforcement agency’s Operation Hoodsie Cup, which allows officers to connect with kids in the community by handing out ice cream.
The truck costs $89,000, reports the Associated Press.
“If you had told me 30 years ago that the Boston Police Department would have an ice cream truck as part of its patrol force and my officers would be handing out Hoodsie Cups … I would’ve said you were crazy,” Police Commissioner William Evans said in a release. “But, I absolutely love the new truck and everything this program represents.”
The Boston Police Foundation purchased the new truck. HP Hood Co. donates the ice cream.
