Halloween. It’s time for candy, costumes and trick-or-treating! With many festivities kicking off this weekend, Kentucky State Police wants to make sure parents review safety tips with their little ‘goblins’.

Saint-Blancard offers the following tips for parents:

· Make sure your child carries a flashlight, glow stick or has reflective tape on their costume to make them more visible.

· Younger children should be accompanied by an adult or older sibling.

· Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they have been checked by an adult.

· Make sure your child is able to see out of their mask properly and can walk in their costume without tripping.

· Remind kids not to enter a strange house or car.

· Inspect your child's candy before they eat it. Discard any unwrapped or suspicious looking goodies. If your child does get sick, call your doctor or the hospital emergency room immediately and save all wrappers. It is also helpful to determine what he or she ate and where it came from.

· Talk to your children about ‘stranger-danger’ and the safety precautions when around someone they do not know.

The KSP also wants to remind those driving on Halloween to be extra cautious of our small pedestrians.

For more information about safe trick or treating please contact Kentucky State Police at (502) 782-1780 or www.kentuckystatepolice.org.
