Halloween Safety Tips

** HALLOWEEN SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS **
Clowns
With all the national attention regarding persons dressed as clowns, be prepared to see more this Halloween. It is not unlawful to wear a clown costume, nor any mask or disguise unless over the age of twelve. However, it is highly suggested that you don’t. Since the clown phenomenon, there has become greater heightened awareness and less tolerability of clowns. Someone dressed as a clown for an “innocent” night out could become harmed by a frightened or overzealous passerby not wanting to take chances.
Basic Safety Tips
- Avoid allowing children to try on other children’s mask; this will help prevent the spread of flu and/or other illnesses.
- Avoid walking with groups that are being rowdy or mischievous.
- Inspect all treats and avoid eating those that appear to have been tampered with.
- Only cross streets where it is well lit and avoid walking in the roadway.
- Participate in activities appropriate to the children's age only.
Crime Prevention (Adults)
- While escorting children, wear light-colored clothing.
- While walking along the street, stay close to your child to help prevent them from unexpectedly running into the street upon the approach of a sudden and scary house display.
- Carry a flashlight and your cell phone with fresh batteries.
- Report all illegal or mischievous activity to the police immediately. This may help prevent further incidents from occurring.
- Do not allow children to carry all the candy. The child may become a target to older children, and have it snatched from them. With the adult carrying some of the candy, the child will still have some treats to enjoy later.
- If your home is vacant, keep it well lit. A dark yard (and residence) may be inviting to mischief activity.
- Remain cautious of adults who appear to be concealing their identity for no particular reason. Halloween enables a person the opportunity to perform illegal acts, while in disguise.
- If you take your camera (or cell phone) to photograph your children, remember that it could be used as a tool to document suspicious persons, activity, damage, etc.
