In a few hours the children of Alice and surrounding communities will be out trick-or-treating. The Alice Police Department wants parents and children to keep some safety tips in mind this Halloween.

Parents make sure your child's costume is visible at night.

Consider wearing a glow stick or flashing lights on the costume.

Children should never go trick or treat alone always have an adult with you.

Never go into a stranger’s house or even ring the doorbell unless an adult is with you.

Never get into a stranger’s vehicle, no matter what the person tells you.

Be careful when you cross the street. Make sure you look both directions to ensure there are no vehicles approaching.

Plan a safe trick or treating route so that parents know where their older kids are at all times.

Please remember not to eat candy until it has been checked by a parent.
