Safety Tips For Checking Halloween Candy Wait until children are home to sort and check treats. Though tampering is rare, a responsible adult should closely examine all treats and throw away any of the following candies that have: An unusual appearance or discoloration Tiny pinholes or tears in wrappers Spoiled or unwrapped items Homemade items or baked goods should be discarded unless you personally know who gave them. When in doubt, throw it out Tell children not to accept -- and, especially, not to eat--anything that isn't commercially wrapped. Parents of young children should also remove any choking hazards such as gum, peanuts, hard candies and small toys. Try to apportion treats for the days following Halloween.

GREENWICH — The Town of Greenwich took top national honors as a safe and livable community, according to a company that provides information on security. SafeHome.org, which bills itself as a leading authority on home security and home-automation testing, rated Greenwich as No. 1 in its annual review of “safest cities,” defined as communities over 50,000 in population. It used recent statistics from the Federal Bureau of Statistics, demographic information and other metrics, to determine a list of the 101 safest cities in the country. “Its proximity to New York City makes it a desirable city to live in for commuters, where their families can be safe,” the trade organization said in highlighting Greenwich. It also cited the wealth of the community: “One of the main reasons would be that Greenwich is the wealthiest town in the state, with the median income at $167,825 for a family.” Enfield and Norwich followed Greenwich as the next safest cities in Connecticut. Greenwich police spokesman Lt. John Slusarz said it was always nice to receive recognition from trade organizations. “Good news, we’ll take it,” he said. “We do a lot of work to keep our community safe.” The public usually associates local law enforcement with little more than making arrests, but there is more going on than just that, Slusarz said. “All our officers are involved in community,” he said. The goal is to forge a partnership with the public to create a safe environment, he said. While the recent report from the FBI on crime statistics showed an increase in some categories of crime last year, police supervisors note that fluctuations are typical from year to year, but the numbers are all on the low side of the spectrum. In 2017, Greenwich turned up in the No. 1 spot on a list of the safest communities to raise a child, as ranked by a security-consulting organization. SafeWise, another online trade organization, cited Greenwich’s abundant recreational resources, as well as crime statistics, to cite it as a desirable place to raise a family.
