The Stratford Police Service wants to remind parents, caregivers, children and motorists that every effort must be made to keep Halloween a safe and enjoyable occasion.
Before the kids hit the streets, it is important that parents be aware of the route that their children plan to follow.
If you are unable to take them out yourself, consider asking another parent, an older sibling or babysitter to do the honours for you.
Although tampering of treats is rare, remind children that they must have their candy inspected by their parents or guardian prior to eating it.
Motorists are reminded to take their time driving during Halloween night and to be mindful of the children walking in the area.
