Safety Tips

The DeKalb Police Department recommends the following tips to keep children safe during Halloween:

  • Young children should Trick or Treat with an adult
  • Older children should Trick or Treat in large groups
  • Children should walk on the sidewalk NOT in the street
  • Children should cross the street at intersections or crosswalks
  • Children should wear reflective clothing and carry flashlights or glow sticks
  • Children should NOT wear all black clothing, this makes them virtually invisible to drivers
  • Children should stay on the step and NOT enter a stranger’s home for ANY reason
  • Parents should inspect their child’s candy before consuming

Caution to Drivers:

  • Drive slow and be on the look-out for young children
  • Enter & Exit drive ways slowly and carefully
  • Do NOT be distracted inside your vehicle with your radio, cell phone or other item.

Have a Safe & Happy Halloween!


Bonus: 
Today is appropriately also national Knock Knock Joke Day and National Doorbell Day.

So in honor of those two things, here is a knock knock joke:

Knock knock!
Who’s there?
Nobel
Nobel who?
Nobel is working, so I had to knock
