Halloween is coming up fast and the Taylorville Police Department wants to make sure people take precautions and to be as safe as possible. Sargent Alan Mills of the Taylorville PD said Halloween is a time for fun, but it never hurts to make sure it's safe fun. Mills said he wasn't too worried about candy issues, but when it comes to pranking, people should expect it and be aware.
One other thing Mills wanted to mention was the clown epidemic, and he wants people to take the matter seriously. He expects there to be more clowns out this year, and that's not an issue, the issue is what people do while wearing the costume.
