Trick or treat safely this Halloween

HALLOWEEN is creeping up on us and the Queensland Police Service has issued some advice to the scary monsters who will be haunting the street.

Soon we will have hordes of little lolly-crazed zombies, skeletons, vampires and maybe a Barbie and Ken (or two) going home to home, street to street, in search of candy.

As we prepare for the spooky festivities of 31 October, The Police Service is reminding all the ghouls (and their parents) to trick or treat safely.

Sink your fangs into the following safety tips:

  • Even scary monsters should be accompanied by an adult.
  • Do your trick or treating before dark (and before all the lollies are gone!)
  • Trick or treating is the most fun (and safe!) in a group.
  • Never enter a stranger’s home; even if you’re a vampire and you’ve been invited in.
  • Wear bright colours so you can be seen as you’re crossing the road to get to that next house!
  • Walk (or shamble, creep, lurch, slither) and don’t run.
  • Keep to the footpaths and don’t walk on the road.

There are also posters available for those who leap into the Halloween spirit and those who find hordes of monsters descending on them a bit too scary. Posters are also available are easy to print out at home or at your local print shop.

For the Halloween enthusiasts, download the ‘Trick or Treaters welcome’ poster and for those who would rather not participate in Halloween this year, this is a colour version of the poster, and a black-and-white version.
