With Halloween fast approaching in the next couple of weeks, we are issuing some crime prevention advice to keep everybody safe this Halloween!
- Adults should always accompany young children when trick or treating
- Please, where possible, only knock on the houses of people you know
- Keep to well lit areas, carry a torch, wear hi-vis clothing and always remember road safety
- Unless pre-arranged, do not visit the elderly or vulnerable in your neighbourhood. If you do not wish to have trick or treaters then please follow the link for a poster https://www.westmercia.police.uk/SysSiteAssets/media/downloads/west-mercia/halloween-activities/halloween-no-trick-or-treat-poster-bw.pdf
- Eggs and flour can cause damage and considerable distress and can also lead to criminal convictions. Any premises selling these items will be more vigilant and will inform the police.
- If anyone is displaying the “No trick or treating poster” do not visit the address
- Don’t let your fun become anti-social behaviourIf you experience any anti-social behaviour please visit our website to report this https://www.westmercia.police.uk/ro/report/ocr/af/how-to-report-a-crime/If you are struggling to print the poster above, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can try and arrange for one to be delivered
