We all scream for ice cream, and now the Bensalem Police do too.

The department will be showing off its new “Copsicle” ice cream bus for the first time Wednesday.

It’s a small school bus donated by the Bensalem school district converted to dish out frozen goods. And the only qualified drivers are Bensalem police officers.

The best part is the ice cream is free.

“This is one more initiative by the Bensalem Township Police Department in forming relationships and breaking down barriers with our youth,” said Public Safety Director Fred Harran. “Bensalem Township has always been proactive and creative in forming new partnerships within our community.”

Catch the Copsicle’s debut Wednesday afternoon at 1 p.m. It will be stopping at the Imagination Land Playground located at the corner of Hulmeville and Byberry Roads.

Building a Better Bensalem and Creekside Apartments provided the funds for the project.
