Halloween Safety

Don’t be surprised if over the next few days you see little ghosts and goblins stalking your neighborhood or local stores. With Halloween coming up, local law enforcement is making sure to remind the community to put safety first. “As Halloween grows near,” shares Vernal City Assistant Police Chief Keith Campbell, “I’d encourage drivers to be aware and drive cautiously. I would also encourage trick or treaters to be aware that their costumes may not be visible so to use caution and carry reflectors and a flashlight.” Other tips for Halloween include talking to your children about not going anywhere with strangers, setting a time for kids to be home, and checking areas prior to trick-or-treating for registered sex offenders.
