Trick-or-treating came a couple hours early for some Tri-State kids. Monday was Halloween with a Cop at Tekoppel, Lodge, and Harper Elementary.
Evansville Police headed out to the schools for a special kind of “Trunk or Treat.”
They say the event gives them a light-hearted break in their day, while also showing kids that police officers aren’t anything to be scared of.
Officer Jay Pagett says, “It’s awesome! Get out here and see all these kids smiling, wanting to touch all over you.”
Officer Pagett says they hope to continue doing this event every year and to pick three different schools each year.
