ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - For most children Halloween is all about trick-or-treating and the Bernalillo County sheriff wants to make sure kids stay safe while roaming the streets.
Halloween safety tips:
- Supervise young children. Adults should go out trick-or-treating with kids.
- Trick or treaters and parents should also take a flashlight, a glow stick and any kind of reflector so cars can see them.
- Stay on the sidewalks.
- If kids are old enough, parents can stay home while they are trick or treating. But parents should make sure kids go out in a group.
- As for pets, it's best to leave them home. But if they must come, keep them on a leash.
- If residents are out driving, drivers should remember to go slowly because there could be kids on the street!
- Even though it's totally tempting to eat your candy right away, tell your kids to wait until they get home to eat their candy. Parents should check all pieces, and if anything looks suspicious, just throw it out.
- If a house has its lights off, it's best to just forget knocking on that door. Go to house that are lit up and clearly inviting.
Also, trick or treates should expect to see lots of officers patrolling the streets Thursday night. If residents see anything suspicious, they should not hesitate to call law enforcement.
