Halloween is fast approaching. We want to give you some tips on how to stay safe if staying in or going out during this time.

Attached is a leaflet that can be printed out and placed by your front door, if you would like to discourage those knocking on your door.

Please respect these signs if ‘trick or treating’ or otherwise avoid houses that aren’t decorated or with pumpkins.

When trick or treating:

• A responsible adult should accompany young children on the neighbourhood rounds
• If your older children are going alone, plan and review a route acceptable to you
• Agree on a specific time children should return home
• Teach your children never to enter a stranger's home or car
• Instruct children to travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and stick with their friends
• Take care to avoid any food allergies
• Wear an item that is high visibility, or carry torches to make yourselves and your route visible to others
• Take care when crossing roads and using walkways

Tips for motorists:

● 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
