Halloween is an exciting holiday for children, but they can be vulnerable to injury this night. To ensure trick-or-treaters stay safe, the Waterbury Police Department recommends the following for children:

  • Always trick-or-treat with an adult until at least age 12
  • Only trick-or-treat in familiar, well-lit areas
  • Cross streets at corners, using traffic signals & crosswalks
  • Look left, right & ...left again when crossing streets. Always walk… DON’T RUN when crossing streets
  • Make eye contact with drivers and watch for cars that are turning or backing up
  • Walk on sidewalks or paths; if there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic, as far to the left as possible
  • Never dart out into the street or cross in between cars
  • Wear light colored, flame-retardant costumes decorated with reflective tape or stickers
  • Wear well-fitting, sturdy shoes to prevent trips & falls
  • Carry a flashlight or glow stick to increase your visibility to drivers
  • Wear face paint & make-up; masks can restrict a child’s vision

Talk to your kids about these tips and do your part to ensure a safe and Happy Halloween for them!
