            Halloween Safety Tips
          

With Halloween right around the corner, the Waynesboro Police Department would like to offer a few helpful safety tips to trick-or-treaters, parents, and motorists:

Trick-or-Treaters:

  • Make sure to bring a flashlight and cellular phone on your trick-or-treat outing
  • If the lights are out at the house, pass it up
  • Be mindful of the street names and addresses on your trick-or-treating route
  • Be careful crossing the street!

Parents: 

  • Accompany your child on his or her trick-or-treat outing
  • Pay attention to your surroundings and report anything suspicious immediately
  • Do not allow your child to accept anything that appears inappropriate or suspicious
  • Inspect your child’s candy before they eat it

Motorists: 

  • Drive extra careful in neighborhoods
  • DON’T TEXT AND DRIVE
  • Don’t drive while wearing bulky costumes
  • Be aware; law enforcement agencies across the area are holding enhanced DUI patrols on Halloween night; if alcohol consumption is part of your celebration, designate a driver.
