Jackson PD Has Halloween Safety Tips

trick-or-treat

No doubt, parents and their children will be putting finishing touches on Halloween costumes for tomorrow at school and the evening that follows.  The Jackson Police Department is offering a couple familiar pointers to assure such disguises are put together with safety in mind.  One of the most important considerations, says Sergeant Cole Nethercott, is to be sure the child’s vision isn’t impaired.  Nethercott says too many costumes inhibit the wearer’s vision which can cause problems when they are walking around the community’s streets or in the dark in general.  Nethercott also recommends incorporating reflective material or tape into the costume to assure they can be easily seen by motorists.  By the same token, he says motorists should be extra watchful for excited children darting across the streets while on their Halloween rounds.  Nethercott also suggests mapping out known areas for trick-or-treating to take place.  Again, he urges people to only go to places that they are familiar with, never go inside the houses of strangers, and if possible, parents should go trick-or-treating with younger children.  Jackson Police he says will be out with extra patrols to assure everyone has fun in a safe manner and that others don’t use the holiday for malicious intent.
