Let's keep trick-or-treating safe and fun tonight!

Halloween is a frightfully fun night for little kids and big kids too, but there are a few hazards--even if you don't run into a hungry T-Rex like Officer Pruette did. Here are some more common safety tips for trick-or-treaters, parents and drivers to keep the evening safe and fun for all.

Trick-or-treaters and parents:

  • Check your children's costumes--can they both see and be seen? Reflective tape on costumes is a great idea.
  • If your children are old enough to go out trick-or-treating with friends, make sure one of them has a cell phone, knows how and when to call 911, and has your number and other important numbers programmed and ready to go.
  • Review their route with them in advance, so that they have a safe route and you know where they're going.
  • Only go up to homes with a porch light on. Don't ever go inside a house or car to get a treat.
  • Remind them to put the cell phones down and look both ways before crossing any street. Make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  • Don't eat any treats until an adult has checked them for tampering or allergy triggers.


  • As always, never mix alcohol, marijuana or other drugs when driving. How would you live with yourself if you hit a child pedestrian because you were impaired?
  • Ditto with cell phone use. Put the electronic devices away and focus on driving.
  • Be extra vigilant for pedestrians during prime trick-or-treat hours, 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.  Turn your headlights on, drive slowly in residential areas, and remember that excited kids in pursuit of candy can be unpredictable.

Wishing everyone, even our dinosaur friends, a frightfully wonderful and safe Halloween!
