To ensure a safe Halloween night, here are a few safety tips from the Windsor Police Department*:


For Parents of Trick-or-Treaters:

  • Know your treaters' route.
  • Take a flashlight.
  • Be sure costumes, shoes and treat bags are safe.
  • Remind kids not to enter strangers' homes or cars.
  • Set rules about not eating treats until kids get home. Be sure to inspect all treats before allowing kids to eat them.
  • Candy that has been opened should be thrown away. Any homemade treats or fruit should be inspected closely.
  • Remember drivers have a hard time seeing people, especially at dusk.
  • Never cross the street from between parked cars.
  • Watch open flames from jack-o-lanterns as they can catch costumes and long wigs on fire.
  • Make sure that fake knives, swords and guns are made from cardboard or other flexible materials to avoid accidental injury or, worse, have them mistaken for the real thing.

For Home Owners:

  • Turn on your porch light.
  • Move lit jack-o-lanterns off the porch where kids get bunched up if they are trick-or-treating in groups.
  • Remove objects from your yard that might present a hazard.
  • Drive slowly all evening — you never know what creature may suddenly cross your path.
  • Report any suspicious or criminal activity to the police.
