CPD Asks Casper Trick-or-Treaters to Stay Safe This Halloween
The Casper Police Department says it’s aiming to keep little ghouls, ghosts, zombies and goblins safe as they trick-or-treat this Halloween.
Officer Jadee Kroeger, who’s with the Casper Police Department, says it’s important for parents to always keep trick-or-treaters visible to motorists.
Kids should wear bright or light-colored costumes so they stick out – the dark colored costumes make it difficult for vehicles at night to see them,” Kroeger said. “They should also put some of that reflective tape on their costumes as well.”
Kroeger says, for kids who aren’t trick-or-treating with their parents, trick-or-treaters should only venture to homes they’re familiar with.
Kids should go to places that they know,” Kroeger said. “The kids should also always have a flashlight with them, parents phone numbers and a phone with them, too.”
Kroeger also recommends trick-or-treaters not enter any homes while out trick-or-treating. Parents should also inspect all Halloween candy after their children finish trick-or-treating for the night.
Kroeger also says, in an effort to enhance public safety and to curb Halloween mischief and rowdiness, residents can expect to see additional patrols throughout Casper on Halloween.
