The Ardmore Police Department would like to remind everyone that there will be a lot of pedestrian traffic downtown and through all the neighborhoods. If you are on foot walking through the neighborhoods after sundown, we recommend the use of flashlights, glow sticks or reflective material being worn. Have fun but most of all stay safe!

The Ardmore Police Department wants to remind parents of the Ardmore Juvenile Curfew Ordinance. The curfew, which has been enforced since 1992, applies to all juveniles under age 17, parents or guardians who knowingly permit or allow a minor to remain in a public place during curfew hours, and business owners/operators who knowingly allow a minor to remain on their premises during curfew hours. Nighttime curfew hours are from 1:00 a.m. until 6:00 a.m. Parents who allow their children to violate the curfew can be issued a citation. The fine for a curfew violation can be up to $100. Children who obey the curfew are in less danger of being a crime victim or being in a situation where they could be arrested.

Halloween Safety Tips Halloween is right around the corner! Kids love this holiday because they can dress up and get free candy! Let us help your kids have some good Halloween memories with a few safety tips. Some of you kids already know things that you can do to be safe, like how to cross the street, not to talk to or go with strangers and things like that. However, we adults know how exciting Halloween can be and sometimes you forget to be careful. Here are some tips that we have just for you kids, to help keep you safe on Halloween night. 1. Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult. 2. Plan a trick-or-treating route in familiar neighborhoods with well-lit streets. 3. Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. 4. WALK and don’t run from house to house. 5. Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe. 6. Be careful when you cross a street. Make sure to look in both directions and make sure that there are no cars coming. If you have a little brother or sister with you, take their hand and help them get across the street, too. 7. If the street has a stop light, wait until the cross walk light tells you that it is okay to cross now, but still check before you cross, look both ways. 8. Choose bright costumes, and have children carry flashlights or glow sticks so they are easily visible. (Hint – Try adding reflective tape to costumes and candy bags!) 9. Never, ever go into a strangers house or even ring their door for treats unless your parents are with you and say that it’s okay. 10. Always walk younger children to the door to receive treats. Be sure children do not approach any vehicle, occupied or not, unless you are with them. 11. Never accept rides from strangers. 12. Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. 13. Limit the amount of treats you eat. 14. Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers. 15. Make sure children know your cellphone number, their home telephone number, and address in case you are separated. 16. Consider giving them a cellphone so they can reach you easily. 17. Teach children how to call 911 in an emergency. 18. Teach children to say “NO!” in a loud voice if someone tries to get them to go somewhere, accept anything other than a treat, or leave with them. Tell them to try everything they can to escape, including yelling, hitting, and kicking. Have a safe and happy Halloween!
