Good Morning Thorntown! We would like to invite every one of our town's Trick or Treaters to attend our "Night Out on Main Street" , October 31st event starts at 7pm following the contest and ends at 9pm. Halloween night of course! Following the Halloween Parade and Costume Contest Thorntown officers will be handing out cards at the Thorntown Police Department to each Trick or Treater. On these cards are all of the participating Main St. businesses and orginizations. Stop by each of these businesses, collect your treat and get your card marked. Once you have visited each place and your card is completed, return to the Thorntown Police Department for a hotdog, chips and a drink courtesy of the Knights of Pythias and your Thorntown Police. The goal of this event is to: -keep everyone safe by staying in groups, well lighted areas and under supervision of many -have kids explore downtown Thorntown -feed the Trick or Treaters something other than candy (See, we've even taken care of dinner for you!) -engage the youth and our officers together in community outreach to further promote a safe and secure place to live -promote our downtown businesses and what they have to offer We would like to thank all of our participating businesses and the Knights of Pythias for their donations and efforts throughout the event! There are many other businesses around Thorntown that were unable to participate in this event simply due to location. We are already looking at a way to involve them next year. Please consider visiting the other businesses and houses around town. Stay Safe Thorntown!

Happy Festival Thorntown! It's that time of year again. Now that The Festival of the Turning Leaves is here, we wanted to reach out to everyone and remind you about 12 safety tips and a few ways YOU can help us all this weekend! 1. NO on street parking where indicated. Especially on the parade and detour routes. We are expecting a huge turnout of visitors and need to keep the streets clear for traffic and for emergency personnel. This is critical for a safe and successful festival. Any violators will have citations issued and the vehicles may be towed at the owners expense. 2. Drink plenty of water. Don't be the next victim of the heat. Make sure kids and the elderly are also drinking plenty. Consider offering water at your booths and garage sales. 3. When your sales and booths close, there is no reason for strangers to continue to shop. Especially overnight. Call in anything suspicious. We will have multiple officers on duty round the clock to handle these calls! 4. Ask your visitors to pull off the roadway to keep the streets clear. This includes your garage sale shoppers! 5. Consider using the elevator for parking for your visitors and out of towners. This lessens the vehicles packed onto crowded roads. 6. During the parade, please keep everyone safe and away from floats. 7. When the parade route shuts down, it opens for no one except for emergency vehicles. You must follow instructions by staff and signs or tape along the route. 8. Curfew will be enforced. Please have all kids home by 11p or earlier. This lessens suspicious people calls and keeps everyone safe and having a nice festival. 9. No one should be on Fire Department grounds during the fireworks display. Please keep East of West St. for viewing fireworks Friday night. Anyone on the grounds will halt the display. 10. Medical services will be staged across from the utilities office on Main St. Don't hesitate to go get checked out if needed. Keep an eye on children and elderly as well. Take them if they are acting or looking different. 11. Dogs must be restrained by leash when walking. Any loose dogs will be held and citations will be issued to owners. This is for everyone's safety including your dogs. 12. Above all else. Stay safe and have fun! Swing by the Police Department or stop any of us if needed or if you just want to meet your local officers! These tips are just a few ways that you can help keep everyone safe! Our number one goal is for everyone to return home the same way they left only happier and maybe a little tired. Stay Safe Thorntown!

Good Morning Thorntown! Please avoid the area of SR. 47 and Elm Swamp Road as 47 is closed in both directions due to a crash. It is currently unknown how long the closure will last. Please seek alternate route. Stay Safe Thorntown!

Slow down and move over for emergency vehicles!

Hope Everyone heard the sirens
