Halloween Safety Advice from NZ Police

Halloween Safety advice 

Police are encouraging parents, caregivers and children to celebrate Halloween safely by following some simple safety tips.

Kids going trick-or-treating should have an adult with them, should stay in well-lit areas and should never go into strangers’ homes.

It’s important to only visit houses where you know the residents – and be careful not to frighten elderly or vulnerable people.

Householders can download and print posters from the Police website www.police.govt.nz – See below to put up on a window or front door – either ‘Trick or Treaters Welcome’ or ‘No Trick or Treaters Please’.

And remember – you don’t have to answer the door. If there are any problems or incidents outside your house and you are concerned, you can ring police for advice or assistance.
