Henderson Police passed on these tips to ensure safety:

•Young children should trick-or-treat with an adult.
•An adult should check candy before it is eaten.
•Children should walk and not run.
•Children should be careful when crossing the street and use crosswalks when possible.
•Children should not walk through yards.  They should use sidewalks and driveways.
•Children should not trick-or-treat after dark.
•Children and adults should wear clothing that will be visible in low light conditions.
•All motorists should slow down, especially in neighborhoods and watch out for children.
 

 Indiana State Police has also sent out tips to remember on Halloween.

Costume tips:

•Keep costumes short to prevent trips and falls.
•Try make-up instead of a mask. Masks often obstruct a child's vision, which makes tasks like crossing the street and going up and down stairs dangerous.
•Make sure children wear light colors or put reflective tape on their costumes. 

Trick-or-Treating tips:

•Make sure older children trick-or-treat with friends. Together, map out a safe route so parents know where they will be.
•Instruct children to stop only at familiar homes where the outside lights are on.
•Encourage children to trick-or-treat while it's still light out. If children are out after dark, make sure they have flashlights and travel on well lighted streets.
•Remind children not to enter the homes or cars of strangers.
•Follow your communities trick-or-treating hours. 

Treat tips:

•Remind children not to eat any of their treats until they get home.
•Check out all treats at home in a well-lighted place.
•Only eat unopened candies and other treats that are in original wrappers. Remember to inspect fruits for anything suspicious. 

ISP says to remember that many communities, schools and churches offer children safe alternatives to trick-or-treating designed to keep children safely within parents' view.

Some hospitals and schools allow children to trick-or-treat by going from room to room, eliminating the dangers associated with being out walking on the street after dark.

We will add more Halloween times and tips as they come into the newsroom.
