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.


Taxpayers have the ability to view budget notices in one central online location at BudgetNotices.IN.Gov. A new email subscription option is provided to taxpayers to stay informed of submissions by their local units. Taxpayers will be able to view all local government units in DeKalb county, search by their address, or use an interactive map tool. This website has been designed to promote the importance of budget notices and the role that they play in the daily lives of Indiana taxpayers. Taxpayers that do not have Internet access or have difficulties with the website may contact the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance at (888) 739-9826 and request a paper copy of the notices for their local government units.
