[ARCHIVED] Having a Fun, Safe Halloween

Bluffdale Police Department wants to ensure all our residents have a safe Halloween this year. 

Trick or Treating can be a fun and exciting activity for all ages if done with a few safety precautions: 

Costumes

  • Use face paint instead of a mask as a mask can block vision. 
  • Wear light-colored costumes or use reflective tape, stickers, or glow sticks to help you be visible.
  • Use a light-colored candy bag for better visibility.
  • Wear shoes that fit to avoid tripping or falling.
  • Ensure your costume isn’t too long to create a tripping hazard. 

Driving

  • Don’t drink alcohol or use drugs and then drive. We need our streets as safe as possible on Halloween night!
  • SLOW DOWN and watch for kids. 
  • If you’re driving children around for trick-or-treating, make sure everyone is buckled up appropriately in a car seat, booster, or seat belt. Do this every time they enter the car, and check to make sure they’re secure before driving to the next stop
  • Put your cell phone down and don’t use any other mobile device while driving. Pull over to safely check voice messages or texts if necessary.
  • Be especially alert for trick-or-treaters during the popular trick-or-treating hours of 5:30 - 9:30pm.

Walking

  • Trick or Treaters under age 12 should be accompanied by an adult.
  • Trick or treat in familiar and well lit areas.
  •  Kids should never enter any house without an adult.
  • Cross the street at intersections using crosswalks where possible.

Treats

  • Parents should inspect all candy before children eat any.
  • All opened or tampered-with treats should be thrown away.


 If you see anything suspicious during your celebrations please call 801-794-3970. By taking a few precautions we can ensure that all of the kids in our community have a fun, safe Halloween.
