During the Halloween and Bonfire celebrations, officers are increasing in their communities to reassure people and to enable us to react quickly to anyone who uses Halloween or bonfire night as an excuse to commit anti-social behaviour.
Some of our residents do worry when trick or treaters knock the door. While we do not want to spoil people’s enjoyment, we also don’t want it to get out of hand and cause people to feel threatened in their own home.
Trick or treating advice includes:
• Always go with an adult
• Only to go to houses where you or your friends know the people and know you are welcome
• Only go to houses displaying the ‘trick or treaters’ welcome poster
• Don’t talk to strangers
• Don’t enter the house always stay on the doorstep
