Halloween is CREEPING up on us! The Collierville Police Department wishes everyone a safe and happy Halloween experience. Take a minute to read these 5 tips to make sure you and your family stay safe while trick-or-treating. 1. Trick-or-treat with trusted neighbors. Use the Nextdoor Treat Map to plan your route ahead of time and find the safest, most efficient route to the candy. You can access the Treat Map here: http://www.nextdoor.com/treat. If you’re planning to hand out candy this year, add your house to the map! Don't forget to choose the newly added Teal Pumpkin if you plan to hand out non-food treats for trick-or-treaters with food allergies. Help make Halloween a safe day for all kiddos. 2. Dress like a ghoul or goblin, but stay safe. Make sure costumes and candy bags or pails are reflective. Costumes shouldn’t drag too far on the ground to avoid tripping, and masks, hats, and shoes should be well-fitting. 3. If you plan to be driving during trick-or-treat hours, watch for children walking on roadways, medians, and curbs. Be sure to enter and exit driveways carefully. 4. Use well-marked routes to get to the candy. Always use the sidewalk, and do not cut across yards or use alleys. Wherever possible, cross the road at a crosswalk. 5. When in doubt, throw the candy out. Avoid candy that has loose wrappings, is completely unwrapped, has puncture holes, or is homemade and not factory-wrapped. Small children should not be allowed hard candy, which could be a choking hazard. If you have any additional trick-or-treating tips you'd like to share with your neighbors, please reply in the comments below. Boo safe out there!

Traffic crash westbound Hwy 385, west of Byhalia. Please avoid.

A message from Collierville Schools. Students at both Crosswind Elementary and West Collierville Middle briefly "sheltered in place" this afternoon. An adult fled during a Collierville Police investigation but was quickly apprehended on Byhalia Road. All is well on both campuses, and school continues as normal.

A great example that shows when you lock your vehicle, you can prevent being a victim of an auto burglary. Notice vehicles on both sides of the street are locked.
