Halloween Safety Tips

As Halloween approaches, the festivities will bring many to the square and communities of Newton County. To effectively reduce criminal activities during this Halloween season, we would like to encourage our citizens to: be on alert; pay attention to crosswalks and intersections; drive below the speed limits on Halloween night and pull off the road into a safe area when you are dropping off or picking up your children.

Safety tips:

  • Be alert at all times.
  • Be familiar with the type of costume your child is wearing.  Take a picture of your child’s costume before leaving home. Keep costumes short to prevent trips, falls, and other bumps in the night.
  • Cross at street corners only; obey all traffic signals.
  • Do not accept any candy from strangers.
  • Do not eat any treats before your parents inspect them.
  • Do not take shortcuts through alleys and parks.
  • Encourage the children to “trunk or treat” with their friends and older siblings.
  • Keep your children on the sidewalk; keep a safe distance from moving cars.
  • Report any suspicious activity by calling 911.
  • Wear comfortable shoes.
Sheriff Brown and the employees of the Newton County Sheriff’s Office hope you will enjoy this festive time with your children and we thank you in advance for supporting us as we support you.
