Halloween is only a week away and while the holiday is all about getting sweets and having fun, it's very important to stay safe during this time too. Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettlekamp said it's important for families walking and for drivers to be aware because during the holiday, there is a lot of foot traffic. He said it's also important to make sure costumes are safe for kids while they're walking around and they have parental supervision if they're under twelve.
Kettlekamp also mentioned the nationwide clown epidemic, and he is expecting a lot of clowns to be out and about this year. He wanted to make clear that because people have a fear of clowns, people can't just attack them. They have to truly feel threatened they are in danger before they are allowed to protect themselves. In all other cases call the Sheriff's Office.
