Go over these Halloween safety tips with your family, and remember to call 911 to report any suspicious or unlawful activity. •A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds. •Obtain flashlights with fresh batteries for all children and their escorts. •If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home. •Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat. •Because pedestrian injuries are the most common injuries to children on Halloween, remind Trick-or-Treaters: ◦Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going. ◦Remember reflective tape for costumes and trick-or-treat bags. ◦Carry a cellphone for quick communication. ◦Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk. ◦If no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic. ◦Never cut across yards or use alleys. ◦Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks (as recognized by local custom). Never cross between parked cars or out driveways. ◦Don't assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing Trick-or-Treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn't mean others will!

Officers Gina and Adam were out at Melzer School conducting an officer friendly presentation for the preschoolers. We want the kids to meet our officers so they won't be afraid to ask for our help. The officers discussed 911 and stranger danger. All the kids got a chance to sit in the squad. We don't know who has more fun at these outings, the kids or officers.
