The day of candy and costumes is here! With plenty of fun to be had, Vernal Police Department is reminding adults to make safety the number one priority. Detective Shaun Smith says one way is to make sure your kids can be seen while Trick or Treating. “Carry a flashlight, wear reflective material and make sure [the kids] are with a responsible adult at all times,” shares Smith. “Have children stay in groups and always inspect the candy before children eat it.” It’s also very important for parents to pay attention as they drive along while their children trick or treat. “Often people are watching their children and not paying attention to the road.” The Vernal Police Department will be at the Mayor’s Walk at the Uintah Community Center handing out reflective slap stick bracelets to help kids be safe during tonight’s activities. There will also be more patrols out tonight in marked and unmarked vehicles. Have a happy and SAFE Halloween!
