Halloween Safety Reminder Each year hundreds of children take part in Halloween activities in the Town of Camillus. There are many safe measures that parents can take to make sure a child is protected. By taking some simple precautions families can make Halloween fun and safe. If a child plans to go trick-or-treating this Halloween, it is important to remember the following safety tips. Treats: Advise children not to eat any treats before an adult has carefully examined them for evidence of tampering. Costumes: When purchasing a costume, masks, beards, and wigs, look for the label Flame Resistant. Although this label does not mean these items won't catch fire, it does indicate the items will resist burning and should extinguish quickly once removed from the ignition source. Visibility: For greater visibility during dusk and darkness, decorate or trim bags with reflective tape that will glow in the beam of a car's headlights. Reflective tape is usually available in hardware, bicycle, and sporting goods stores. To easily see and be seen, children should also carry flashlights. Safety: Costumes should be short enough to prevent children from tripping and falling. If a mask is worn make sure it has eyeholes large enough to allow full vision. Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be of soft and flexible material. Young children should always be accompanied by an adult or an older, responsible child. Children should be cautioned against running out from between parked cars, or across lawns and yards where ornaments, furniture, or clotheslines present dangers. Safe Houses: Children should go only to homes where the residents are known and have outside lights on as a sign of welcome. Children should not enter homes or apartments unless they are accompanied by an adult. By following some simple steps, we can keep this a safe, fun and family friendly Holiday. The Camillus Police Department wishes everyone a safe and fun-filled Halloween. If Camillus residents wish to have a Camillus Police Officer respond to your residence for a free candy safety scan please call (315) 487-0102 and a police officer will respond.

GROWING BEARDS FOR A BENEFIT, AGAIN! The Town of Camillus Police along with the Town of Geddes Police Department are participating in their 2nd annual “NO SHAVE NOVEMBER”. Normally, when you see an officer on patrol you might notice how neatly shaven they are, perhaps a mustache at most for facial hair. During the month of November however, participating members from each of the above departments will be donating money out of their own pocket to a great cause. By choosing to do the No Shave November officers will be allowed to grow a neatly trimmed beard or goatee while still maintaining their professional appearance. The Camillus Police Benevolent Association has also agreed to match whatever contributions are collectively generated from its membership. Through the month if you in fact see an officer with a little more facial hair then in the past know that he is growing this for a very good cause. This year the department’s officers are teaming together and have selected to donate all proceeds to the Central New York Chapter of the Autism Society of America (CNY ASA). “This Chapter became incorporated in July 2003 where operations were based in the Binghamton Area. Effective January of 2007, Chapter operations were transferred to the Syracuse area where they continue to be held. The Autism Society promotes the active and informed involvement of family members and the individual with autism in the planning of individualized, appropriate services and supports. The Board of the Autism Society believes that each person with autism is a unique individual. Each family and individual with autism should have the right to learn about and then select the options that they feel are most appropriate for the individual with autism. To the maximum extent possible, we believe that the decisions should be made by the individual with autism in collaboration with family, guardians and caregivers.” Autism Society Board of Directors, 12 Dec. 2009. Web. For those of you wishing to assist with donating to this cause please make checks payable to the Camillus PBA and indicate CNY ASA in the memo section. At the end of November the officers participating from each department will gather for a group photo with the presentation of the CNY ASA check.
