Jackson Police Urge Caution Tonight

October 31, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Town of Jackson No Comments
trick-or-treat

Halloween is a night of “goulies and ghosties and things that go bump in the night.”  Lieutenant Cole Nethercott says it is that latter fright the police department would like to avoid – particularly when it involves young trick-or-treaters.  He points out that the children often get very excited as they are out after dark and they sometimes cannot see well out of some of their costumes.  He adds, “Most importantly, we are concerned with kids darting into traffic; so we just ask motorists to be extra vigilant.” Nethercott urges parents to be sure the costumes their children are wearing do not impair their ability to see where they are going.  He also says children should be advised not to eat any of the goodies they collect until it has been screened at home. He suggests it is a good idea to make sure your children either have a snack or they’re well fed before going out to prevent them from wanting to get into their candy before you’re able to inspect it. Nethercott suggests costumes should have some sort of reflective material incorporated into them, and children should carry some sort of a flashlight or glow stick to make them more easily seen as they make their rounds.
