Safety Tips for Trick-or-Treating

Posted by thowens on October 27, 2014

The Auburn Police Department would like to remind everyone of some common safety tips while trick or treating this Halloween.

  • Don’t trick or treat alone, go in groups with family or friends
  • Cross the streets at marked intersections
  • Don’t dart between cars
  • Use the sidewalk if available
  • Wear costumes that fit to avoid trips and falls
  • Wear makeup instead of masks as masks can obstruct vision
  • Avoid dark colored clothing
  • Carry a flashlight or glow stick
  • Never enter the homes or cars of strangers
  • Parents, know when and where your children are trick or treating
  • Parents, if using a vehicle, drop your children at intersections using the curb side
  • Check all candy for signs of tampering before consuming.

The Auburn Police Department will be out in force during the following official trick or treating hours and wish everyone a safe and fun holiday.

 Trick-or-Treat Hours on Friday, October 31

  • Downtown: 4-6 p.m.
  • City-wide: 6-8 p.m.
