Local News Update

Trick or Treat…
This period in the calendar sparks off people’s imagination to think of all things gruesome, grisly and ghostly, but unfortunately, some people take the ‘celebrations’ too far, and their actions have consequences which traditionally lead to an increased number of victims of crime.
We are trying to reduce the number of victims of crime, so we are hoping that a coordinated approach will send out a corporate message that we are working together to ensure people have a fun time, but whilst being safe and taking responsibility for their actions.
Key areas which we are tackling this evening are - anti-social behaviour, burglary and personal safety.
Our aims are to:
reduce incidents of ASB on Halloween
help protect the elderly and the vulnerable
help protect unsupervised children.

Also our top tips for a safe and fun Halloween:
. If you’re going trick or treating, make sure you can be easily seen. Take a torch with you and wear something reflective – particularly if your costume is black, be visible.
. Younger children should always be accompanied by an adult.
. Plan your route and tell someone where you’re planning on heading and what time you’ll be home.
. Stay in groups, make sure you all get home safely and don’t accept lifts from strangers
. Don't enter any house, stay on the doorstep.
. Respect your neighbours. If they don’t want to be disturbed, leave them alone.
. If you’re all heading out, don’t make it obvious your home’s empty as it may be a target for burglars. Leave your valuables out of sight.

Thank you
