Tips/advice:
Parents please remind your little ghouls and goblins of some Halloween safety tips (stay in groups, check your candy, wear reflective clothing or carry a flashlight, stay on the sidewalk, trick or treat with an adult or older sibling, etc.)

With the diminishing amount of daylight that we are seeing it is also a good idea to carry a flash light or wear some reflective clothing while you are outside for a walk, bike ride, run or playing with the children. Remember to leave lights on when you are not home and to lock everything up, even during the day.

Please report anything suspicious to the police department immediately by calling 911.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO LOCK YOUR VEHICLES AND YOUR HOUSE. DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR VEHICLE EITHER. DO NOT LEAVE FIREARMS IN YOUR VEHICLE.
