Top 10 Halloween Safety Tips From the Police:

1. Wear a costume that fits so you don’t trip over it.

2. Make sure your costume lets you see and hear well. If possible, wear face paint instead of a mask.

3. Choose a costume that is light in color or wear reflective clothing.

4. Carry a flashlight to help you see in the dark and to help others see you.

5. Cross the street at corners, and never between parked cars.

6. Go trick-or-treating with a trusted grown-up.

7. Visit only people you know, such as friends, neighbors, and relatives.

8. Let a trusted grown-up check all treats before you eat them.

9. Set a time limit for children to Trick-or-Treat.

10. Remind kids not to enter a strange house or car.
