Halloween Safety Tips

Children will trick or treat hoping for buckets full of goodies but more important than the candy, is celebrating safely.
The Louisiana State Police offer a few Halloween tips to keep everyone safe.
  • For drivers, officers recommend taking it slow in residential neighborhoods and planning a ride ahead of time if you're planning to consume alcohol.
  • For trick or treaters, officers recommend wearing reflective costumes, walk on sidewalks, never go into stranger's house, have a grown-up inspect your treats before eating and don't eat candy if it's already opened.
  • "Don't leave your children alone. If you're trick or treating go to houses you know the people and safe neighborhoods," said Louisiana State Trooper Albert Paxton.
  • This year, trick or treating will be observed in Monroe and West Monroe Thursday, which is Halloween.
