Police handing out safety tips for trick-or-treaters

Green Bay Police urge parents and children to be aware of their surroundings Halloween night.
Green Bay, Wis. (WFRV) - Candy, costumes and pumpkins - oh my! As parents and children alike prepare for once of the sweetest night's of the year, Green Bay Police are reminding everyone to do their part in keeping one another safe.

"Children should not be alone, they should be with a responsible adult," said Lt. Jeff Brester, Green Bay Police Department. "Don't go into dark houses, only go to houses that are properly lit up."

The hours of trick-or-treating are from 4pm to 7pm. And with the sun setting before the end of the candy hunt, Police urge parents to bring a flashlight with them and add some sort of reflective tape to their kids costumes.

An other safety tip that Police are stressing for drivers: slow down. And if there is ever any question about a house or incident, report it.

"And if you're ever suspicious of a house, either don't go to it or if there's something suspicious while you're over there, call the police and we'll send an officer over to make sure everything is okay," Brester said.

There will be some extra community police officers out and checking in on houses on both sides of town.
