Keeping kids safe while still having fun is an important goal for parents on Halloween. A few simple precautions can keep kids safe:

• Have kids trick or treat together in groups with plenty of parental supervision
• Make sure kids have a good meal before they go out, so they’re not tempted to eat the candy before parents have a chance to check it for them
• Only knock on doors with the porch lights on (registered sex offenders are required to keep their porch lights off on Halloween night)
• Give kids glow sticks, flashlights, or reflective tape to wear on their costumes
• Homeowners are reminded to keep their front door well lit and free of obstacles

Some parents are keeping kids safe by skipping trick-or-treating all together, opting for Halloween parties or trick-or-treat events at malls and churches.
