Children are four times more likely to be killed getting hit by a car on Halloween than any other night of the year.

Georgetown Police have tips to keep you and your kids safe while trick-or-treating.

  • Kids should be supervised while trick-or-treating
  • Stay in familiar neighborhoods
  • Don’t have kids knock on doors that aren’t lit
  • Look both ways when crossing streets
  • Costumes should be bright or kids should at least carry something reflective
  • Check all candy before kids eat it  - look for unusual objects, strange smells and tears in packaging
  • Drivers should be extra alert – use headlights early in the evening, drive slow and use blinkers
  • Remember common sense

Since Halloween falls on a weeknight this year, some houses may end their festivities early.  Police say to be mindful of these houses.
