Our CSPD candy crew is out and about handing out treat bags to trick or treaters they see acting safely. If you see them....say hi and get a treat bag but guard your candy....McGruff has a sweet tooth!

The Carol Stream Police Officers will be on special patrol in the residential areas during the Trick or Treating hours of 3:00pm-7:00pm today. Officers will be reinforcing pedestrian safety by distributing treat bags, which have been provided to us by AAA. No Trick or Treat bag would be complete without a little candy. Candy was donated by our friends at Just A Taste Confections located at 145 Hiawatha in Carol Stream. Please stop and say "BOO" to our Officers, they would love to see you!! A BIG thanks to: www.AAA.com www.justatasteconfections.com

Halloween is quickly approaching, here are some helpful tips from your friends at the Carol Stream Police Department: Remember trick or treating hours are from 3:00pm-7:00pm • Look both ways before crossing the street • Do not eat candy without your parent’s permission • Do not eat opened candy • Carry a flashlight or a glow stick • Only visit houses with porch lights on • Accept treats at the door – do not go inside a stranger’s house • Younger children should walk with an adult • Stay with your friends or in a group • Remind kids to stay out of the street, stay on the sidewalk • Parents keep an eye out and drive safe • Have a spookingly good time!

This Halloween the Carol Stream Police Department is cracking down on impaired drivers. The 'Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' enforcement campaign urges everyone to follow these simple tips in order to keep our roads safe: • Plan a safe way to get home before you attend a party • Designate a sober driver or take public transportation • Walking while impaired can be just as dangerous, designate a sober friend to walk you home • If you see an impaired driver, contact the local law enforcement as soon as it is safe to do so • Take the keys away from an impaired driver and help them get home safely The Halloween enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Thank you and keep the party off the road.

Don't forget the Crime Free Housing Seminar is tonight at 6:00pm. Thanks to all those that signed up!!

We would like to remind you to lock your vehicles and remove valuables. Car burglaries are often a preventable and you can help keep yourself from becoming a victim by taking these 2 steps. The vast majority of car burglaries we handle involve unlocked vehicles with valuables left inside. Most car burglars tell us, if the vehicle is locked, they will move on to one that isn’t. Lock it up and never leave your purse or wallet in your car!
