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.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
