Indiana State Police share Halloween safety tips


JASPER, Ind. (WEHT) – The Indiana State Police Jasper Post shared tips to make sure everyone gets home safely on Halloween.

  • Know what the dates and times are in your local community for trick or treating.
  • Make sure that you have a flashlight, glow stick, or reflective material on the costume so that you can be seen at all times.
  • Always trick or treat with an adult or in a group and use the buddy system when going from house to house.
  • Please walk on the sidewalks and not in the roadway and make sure that you look both directions before crossing the roadway.
  • Only go trick or treating at houses where the front porch light is on.
  • Take masks off between houses so that you can see where you are walking. 
  • Only accept treats at the doorway of the house.  Never enter the house of a stranger.
  • If a trick or treater gets separated from the group, have them stay where they are located and ask an adult for help. 
  • Have an adult inspect the candy before it is eaten. 
  • If you’re not actively participating in trick or treating and are out driving, we ask that you please slow down and drive with caution.
