Police recommend trick-or-treat hours


Kokomo Tribune

---- — The Kokomo Police Department is again asking everyone to put safety first as you trek out in neighborhoods trick-or-treating this year.

As it has for the past several years, the police department recommends people go from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Halloween night to get their treats.

For safety reasons, the department is asking parents to limit their children to these hours within the city limits.

The department also reminds parents of the importance of supervising their children in this yearly celebration. Parents need to be mindful of traffic conditions and remember that many costumes tend to limit a child’s vision.

Police also suggest that children not eat their treats while going door to door, but wait until they are finished and then allow their parents to inspect what they’ve been given for any sign of tampering.

If you suspect you have an item which has been tampered with or looks suspicious, please call the Kokomo Police Department at 765- 459-5101.
