Police Urge Safety For Those Taking Part in Halloween

The Lafayette Police Department issued the following recommendations to assure a safe and enjoyable Halloween:

  • Choose costumes that are marked flame retardant and add reflective tape or reflectors to darker colored costumes.

  • All children should remain under the direct supervision of parents or guardians.

  • Carry a flashlight or other illuminant device.

  • Have children stay within their own familiar neighborhood and only visit homes they know.

  • Adults should inspect all candy prior to the children indulging.

  • Give and accept wrapped or packaged candy only.

  • Have props such as magic wands and swords constructed out of cardboard rather than metal or wood. This will avoid unnecessary injuries.

  • Drive vehicles cautiously in areas where children are trick or treating.

  • Finally, for those adults that will be attending parties for Halloween, please do not drink and drive. The Lafayette Police Department will be patrolling in the neighborhoods to assure a safe Halloween.
