-Here are some Halloween tips to help keep children and families safe:

-Trick or treat during designated hours and only go to those homes that have a porch light on to welcome trick or treaters

-Carry a flashlight to light the way on streets and sidewalks. A flashlight will also help illuminate children for motor vehicles

-Make sure that costumes do not cause a safety hazard for children by being too long or include masks that affect their ability to see clearly

-Homeowners should make sure that pets are secured so that they do not become frightened by the children in costumes and activity that is out of the ordinary

-Children should be instructed to not eat candy until it has been inspected by an adult

-Adults should watch over all activity occurring in the neighborhoods to ensure the safety of children and to make sure the event remains fun for all

-Children should be instructed to NEVER enter the home of someone they do not know and to remain on the porch to receive their treats

-Any observed suspicious activity or tainted candy should be reported to police immediately
