The Washington County Sheriff's Office is reminding the community to lock vehicles doors and not to leave items of value within the vehicle. Leaving items such as electronics or loose change will catch the attention of criminals.

Do your part to help keep our kids safe.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is reminding the community to stay safe this Halloween. We will have additional patrols throughout the county to help keep our little ghouls and goblins safe. Below are some safety tips for those who are participating in Trick-or-Treat activities or who will be on the roadways during those times. Anyone who plans to be on the road during Trick-or-Treat hours: Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs. Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully. At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing. Please pay careful attention while traveling on neighborhood roadways. If you plan on participating in Trick-or-Treat activities, remember a responsible adult should accompany young children on the neighborhood rounds. If your older children are going alone, plan and review a route acceptable to you and set a specific time children should return home. Remind children never to enter a stranger's home or car and to travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and stick with their friends. Children and adults are reminded to put electronic devices down, keep heads up and walk, don't run, across streets.

As the holiday season approaches we ask our community to remain aware of scammers. Unfortunately, there are numerous types of scams circulating across the nation, and here in Washington County we are not shielded from them. Gift cards are the number one payment method that a scammer will demand. Please remember, gift cards are for gifts, not for payments. If someone calls with urgent news, claims to be from a governmental agency or has a convincing story and then pressures you to pay them by buying a gift card, like an iTunes, Moneypak or Google Play card – stop.
