Message from the Police about Halloween

Message from the Police


Halloween is creeping up on us once again and we want to remind people our officers will be working to discourage anti-social behaviour and ensure a safe Halloween for all.


Halloween can be a great time of year for many, in particular children and young people, and a great opportunity to dress up and go trick or treating.


However, for some people in our communities, Halloween behaviour can leave them feeling intimidated and distressed, or they simply don’t want to be visited by trick or treaters.


It is important that people keep safe and below are some top tips to having a frightfully good time:

  • Plan your trick or treat route beforehand. Only go to houses where you or your friends know the residents. Always go in groups. Don’t go without an adult.
  • Be cautious about eating what people give you when out trick or treating. Check with an adult when you get home.
  • Be visible, stay in areas that are well lit with streetlights where possible. Take a torch just in case.
  • Don’t wear masks that restrict your vision. You need to see when crossing roads.
  • Don’t enter any house when trick or treating, stay on the doorstep.
  • Don’t knock on doors where you see a ‘No trick or treat callers’ sign.
  • Avoid using real candles in lanterns and pumpkins. Battery operated lights are safer.


Local Policing Chief Superintendent Paul Moxley, said: “We certainly don’t want to be spoil anyone's fun, we know Halloween can be an exciting time for many people. All we ask is that if you do plan on trick or treating that you are mindful of others who may not want to get involved. Halloween trick or treaters can often leave some people feeling intimated or distressed.


Chief Superintendent Moxley added: “As is normal practice for us, we will have an increased police presence throughout the evening during Halloween with officers carrying out high visibility patrols in key areas to ensure those who are out and about can enjoy Halloween safely.

“If anyone does have any concerns while they are out trick or treating, whether it be anti-social or suspicious behaviour then I would encourage them to approach our uniformed officers on patrol, or report these online.
