Last Halloween, Campbell Patch asked the Campbell Police Department what advise they would give to parents and trick-or-treaters.
Since the advise still applies, here's that list to keep in mind.
Campbell Police Department Capt. Dave Carmichael on the top five things to keep in mind this holiday season.
- Watch for traffic. Attach reflective tape to clothing and bags to help drivers see you.
- Carry a flashlight to help others see you and to help you identify potential hazards.
- Stay in a group. Never go trick or treating alone.
- Stay on sidewalks and use crosswalks if possible. Look both ways before crossing the street.
- Examine all treats for choking hazards before allowing young children to eat them.
