OFFICER ANNA TEACHES ABOUT HALLOWEEN SAFETY

Posted October 30 at 10:53am

Officer Anna, from the Mt. Hope Police Department, visited Otisville Elementary School to review Halloween safety with students.  Following some simple rules will help everyone enjoy the Halloween evening:

  • Never go out alone.  Be sure to have a "buddy system" in place.  Trick or treating in small groups is a good way to stay safe.
  • Ask for help from a trusted adult if you get lost and never get into a stranger's car.
  • Be sure to have parents inspect candy before it's eaten. 
  • Make safe and smart behavior choices.
