HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS FROM SHERIFF JEFF SONES TO HELP ENSURE A FUN AND SAFE HALLOWEEN FOR US ALL It is the desire of the Blackford County Sheriff’s Office for all families to have a fun and safe Halloween experience. Here are some easy to implement safety tips parents and guardians can review with their children, and for all of us to keep in mind as trick-or-treaters head out this year. PARENTS -Consider mapping out your child’s route considering the density of housing, traffic, street lighting and proximity to relatives, neighbors, and friends homes. -Accompany your younger children and plan to go when it is light out. -Have children save all candy until they get home. -Inspect all treats; throw away unwrapped, open or suspicious looking goodies. TRICK-OR-TREATERS -Keep costumes short to prevent trips and falls. -Costumes with light colors and/or reflective tape are best. Someone in the group should carry a flashlight. Consider putting reflective tape in trick-or-treat bags, too. -Children should always trick-or-treat in groups, preferably with adult supervision. -Carry a cell phone for quick communication. -Children should be instructed to stop only at familiar homes and where the outside lights are on. They should not stop at houses that are dark or do not have a porch light turned on. -Teach children to NEVER enter a home or car to collect candy. AT HOME -Turn outside lights on and replace any burned-out bulbs at the walkway and front door. -Remember, your jack-o-lantern and any other candles or electrical decorations can be a fire hazard. Keep them out of reach of small children and away from flammable materials. -Never leave your house unattended. If you have to leave your house, make sure all doors are locked. -Certainly, if you are going to be driving anywhere on Halloween, keep your eyes peeled. Children will be out and they will be excited—-WATCH FOR THEM BLACKFORD COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPUTIES WILL BE OUT IN THE COMMUNITIES ON HALLOWEEN, BUT PLANNING AND COMMUNICATION ON YOUR PART IS THE BEST WAY TO ENSURE A SAFE CELEBRATION FOR EVERYBODY

Message from Sheriff Jeff Sones: Well it is that time of year, Blackford County School will start classes in the morning. As a reminder, drive safely and watch for our children walking to and from school, standing at the bus stops and at drop off points. Do not pass school buses when their amber and red lights are flashing and stop arms are out. I know this all seems redundant, but we all need to be aware and drive safely!!!
