The Pittsburg Police Department says if you’re driving, look out for trick-or-treaters crossing the roads, slow down in neighborhoods, and carefully enter and exit alleyways and driveways. If you’re a trick-or-treater, only cross at corners and crosswalks, never between parked cars.
Police say it’s better to wear a costume that lets you see and hear well; For example, paint your face instead of wearing a mask. Also, carry a flash-light, only knock on doors of homeowners you know personally, and have an adult check through candy before eating it.
The department is giving out free reflective bags and glow-in the dark bracelets to help keep kids visible Halloween night. You can pick those up at the Beard-Shanks Law Enforcement Center from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. while supplies last.
