Dear Resident,

Halloween is an exciting time for kids to dress up as their favorite character and go door to door trick-or-treating throughout the neighborhood. 

To ensure you and your family have a safe Halloween, please remember these important safety tips for trick-or-treating:

  • Wear reflective tape on costumes or treat bags for visibility.

  • Make sure the costume is easy to walk in.

  • Consider using face paint rather than a mask that will cover the eyes.

  • Carry a flashlight or glow stick.

  • Always walk in groups or pairs.

  • Stop at well-lit homes in familiar neighborhoods.

  • NEVER enter anyone’s home to accept candy!

  • If it’s late and no more kids are about, do not answer your door to a random knock.

  • Be cautious of strangers.

  • A grown-up should inspect treats before eating.  When in doubt, throw it out!

By following these tips, we will all have a happy Halloween. Please continue to visit us on our website and on Facebook @JupiterPolice to learn about new and happening events within the Town of Jupiter.
