Green River Police Department will have officers on Pumpkin Patrol on Halloween evening.
The Green River Police Department encourages everyone to have an enjoyable and safe evening. A few safety tips are:
- Younger children should be accompanied by an adult and wear bright colored, reflective clothing or carry a flashlight or glow stick
- Older children trick or treat in groups
- Have parents check your candy at the end of the evening
- Motorists be aware of trick-or-treaters on foot and trick-or-treaters be aware of vehicles when crossing streets, turn on your headlights before it gets dark.
- Remember to use crosswalks or cross the street at intersections.
- Do your trick or treating early.
- Don’t wear masks that interfere with your vision, or your hearing.
- Avoid houses that don’t have lights on.
If you see a Green River Police Car with a lit pumpkin on top, the officers will be handing out candy to trick-or-treaters.
Green River Police Department will be participating in Trick or Treating Downtown until 5:00 p.m. on October 31.
