The Easton Police officers and staff had a great time at the annual Trunk or Treat last week! We always have a lot of fun creating our trunk and our spooky Sherriff theme is our favorite to date! We loved seeing everyone's costumes and the hard work put into all the wonderful trunk creations. We can't wait to see what everyone creates next year!

On Officer Mark's last full day as a member of the Easton Police Department he spent Halloween with the students of SSES. 🎃 First he helped the principal lead all of the parades and ended the day with his annual Kindergarten Halloween Safety and Magic Show!

Your whole family is welcome as we get together to make a difference!
