- Make sure the path to your door is clear, greet treats with your porch lights, and turn on all exterior lights.
- Occasionally patrol your street to deter speeding, malicious acts and crimes against children.
- Immediately report any suspicious or criminal activity to your police department. Dial 9-1-1.
- Do not give children homemade or unwrapped treats.
- Motorists should use extreme caution when operating a vehicle. Be on the lookout for excited young people, whose vision may be obscured by masks, rushing into traffic.
