PCPD offers advice for safe trick-or-treating

(WTVM) - The Phenix City Police Department has recommended the observation date for Halloween be Wednesday Oct. 31 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. along with the following recommendations for a safe evening of Halloween activities:

  • Remember to wear either a brightly lit costume or one that has reflective tape.
  • Ensure that costume does not impair the child's ability to see or walk.
  • Small children should be accompanied by an adult while trick-or-treating.
  • It is always a good idea to trick or treat within one's own neighborhood.
  • Always inspect any treats that are received by your child prior to it being consumed.

Halloween should an evening of fun for all, but we must all remember to be safe too.
