Winthrop Harbor Police Halloween Safety Tips

The Winthrop Harbor Police Department encourages safety and supervision during the annual Trick-or-Treat season. It is especially important for parents to adhere to a few safety rules for their children when they are trick-or-treating.


Making Your Home Safe For Trick-Or-Treaters

It is also important to ensure that your home is safe and accessible to trick-or-treaters. As adults, there are some very simple things we can do to make the evening safe for everyone.


Turn on your porch light. 

Move lit jack-o-lanterns off the porch where kids get bunched up if they are trick-or-treating in groups.

Remove objects from your yard that might present a hazard.

Drive slowly all evening-you never know what creature may suddenly cross your path.

Report any suspicious or criminal activity to the police.

Motorists

Exercise extreme caution when driving a vehicle.  Be on the alert for excited youngsters, whose vision may be obscured by masks, darting out into traffic.
