The Christian County Sheriff's Department has some Halloween safety tips for the month of October. Chief Deputy Jim Baker of the Christian County Sheriffs Department reminds kids and families participating in Trick or Treating, or Trunk or Treating, to be aware of their surroundings, watch for vehicles, and add a light source to the kiddos in costume to make them more visible.
The community is reminded to travel in groups when heading out for the candy haul and to be aware of houses not to visit. Chief Deputy Baker added that the community should use the Christian County Sheriff’s app which will provide a map of the area.
Chief Deputy Baker explained that the many local Trunk or Treats provide a safe space for kids and adults to relax and enjoy collecting candy, while not worrying about the variables that come with going house to house.
Chief Deputy Jim Baker and the Christian County Sheriffs Department wish for a happy and safe Halloween, which will come easy to those who put safety first.
