CPD adds extra patrols on Halloween

CLAREMORE — Claremore Police Chief Stan Brown said he wants little ghosts and goblins to enjoy treats, not tricks, this Halloween, and said his department has taken extra steps to ensure a safe evening for all.

“We’ve added extra patrol officers to our evening shift for this event and will endeavor to be present in all of the busy neighborhoods during peak trick or treat times,” Brown said. “We encourage all parents, drivers and participating trick or treaters to be safety conscious. 
“Drivers should be mindful of all surroundings and alert to any children who may dart into the roadway. I have listed several safety tips that I wish to remind everyone of and encourage you to adopt them into your routine,” he said. 
Brown offered the following safety tips for persons young and old, planning to celebrate Halloween:
For Kids:
• Children should trick-or-treat during daylight or early evening hours
• Children should never be allowed to go out alone on Halloween
• Children should never eat any treats until they have been examined
• All fruit should be cut and closely examined before eating
• Children should never accept rides from strangers
• Children should never take shortcuts through backyards or alleys
• Set a specific time limit for your children to be out on Halloween night
• A responsible adult should escort children while trick-or-treating
• Children should walk, not run, during their trick-or-treat activities
• Children should wear proper fitting, comfortable costumes and shoes
• Props such as toy guns or swords should be made of pliable material
• Realistic replica firearms should never be used
• Masks should not be worn if they impair vision
• Wigs should be fireproof and should not restrict vision
• Children should always use sidewalks, not the street, for walking
• Children should look in all directions before crossing the street
