Halloween 2019 Tips and Do not Disturb Poster

28 October 2019

Suffolk Police have released the following tips for having a good and safe Halloween:

  • Never go trick or treating alone or split up from your friends.
  • Always check with your parents or carer first.
  • Only go to houses where you or your friends know who lives there.
  • Don’t talk to strangers on the street or go off with them
  • Stay in well-lit areas.
  • Ensure you can be seen by wearing reflective clothing and carry a torch.
  • Take care when crossing roads - it may be hard to see so well in a costume.
  • Although Halloween is about looking spooky, be careful not to frighten those who do not want to take part. A sign asking trick or treaters to not disturb you on Halloween can be downloaded on the Police Website.
