HAPPY HALLOWEEN: SAFETY TIPS Halloween is an exciting night of the year and a particularly special treat for young children. It is also an important time to be extra vigilant for potential safety hazards. The Monroe Police Department wants everyone to have a happy, fun, and safe Halloween by following these tips. PARENTS: Always escort your children and carry a flashlight. Be familiar with the neighborhood where your children will be trick-or-treating. Always know who is trick-or-treating with your children. Walk on the sidewalks and not in the middle of the street. Instruct your children NEVER to enter any homes. Stay in well-lighted areas. Inspect all treats before allowing children to eat them. Consider placing reflective or glow in the dark tape on your children’s costumes. Have children avoid wearing eye makeup or masks, which will restrict their vision. Avoid having children carry replica firearms, knives, or dangerous toys which can be mistaken for the real thing. Teach children their home and/or parent’s cellular phone number in case they get lost. MOTORIST: Drive slowly and cautiously. Look for children walking on the street, running,and darting in between parked vehicles. Be extra careful when entering and exiting driveways. Have a safe and fun Halloween!

We received notification this morning that this event has been cancelled. Thank you!

In case of an emergency all citizens are to utilize the 911 call service, and they will be routed to Monroe Police for assistance. We are working diligently with CenteryLink to have all lines restored as quickly as possible. Thank you for patience and be safe traveling in the inclement weather.

We all value our children so please slow down, be aware of the little ones, drive safely and help others by reminding them to do the same.
