HPD Reminds Trick or Treaters to Have Fun but Stay Safe

October 29, 2010 - The Houston Police Department reminds parents and the public that this Sunday is Halloween. Motorists should use extra caution and watch out for children who are trick or treating, especially after dark. HPD also wants to remind parents of some basic safety tips such as:

  • Never let children walk alone.
  • Do not allow children to enter the cars or homes of strangers.
  • Children should always have an adult inspect candy before eating anything, and never eat any unwrapped food.
  • Children should wear light colored or reflective costumes and should carry a flashlight or other light source to make them more visible.
