Marion County Sheriff's Office urges Halloween Safety

Sheriff Roger Vickers and the Marion County Sheriff's Department urges all parents to put safety first as they make plans to celebrate Halloween this year. We would like for you to please consider the suggested tips which include but are not limited to the following:

• Any parent that would like to know of any registered sex offenders in the areas their child will be trick or treating, you can do so, by viewing our website at www.marioncountysheriffar.com.

• Plan a safe route. Use caution when cutting through residential areas that will likely have a large number of trick-or-treaters. Remind kids not to enter a strange house or car and beware of any dogs, pets, or other animals that may be at the residence.

• Try to wear light, bright and reflective costumes that fit well and make trick-or-treaters easy to see. Add reflective tape to costumes and treat buckets and bags to increase visibility. Avoid masks and other costume accessories that may limit vision.

• Get a flashlight with fresh batteries. A flashlight can help trick-or-treaters see and be seen, but it should never be directed at someone's eyes, including those of passing motorists.

• If you are out driving, please drive with extra care, avoid distractions and pay extra attention for children walking on the roadways who may not be watching for you. Also, review safety precautions for pedestrians with your children.

• For those preparing to welcome trick-or-treaters at home, please be sure to turn on any exterior lights and make sure to remove any obstacles from steps, sidewalks, and lawns. Never encourage a child to enter your home.

• Try to get you kids not to eat their treats until they get home. Never eat an "unopened treat" and check them out at home or in a well lit place.

• As always, please respect the personal and private property of others, because law enforcement action will be taken. Anyone observing any suspicious or criminal behavior, or that finds anything wrong with a "treat" brought home, is asked to call the Marion County Sheriff's Department.
