Halloween Advice

Halloween Pic (4)

It’s Halloween on Thursday – will you welcome or avoid trick or treaters?

If you do not want to be disturbed this Halloween, and would prefer to be left alone, download and print out our free copy of the 'No Trick or Treaters Please' poster and display it by your front door or window.

If however, you are happy to be visited by Trick or treaters - why not let people know by downloading and displaying our 'Trick or Treaters welcome' poster instead.

Those people planning to go out on Halloween night are also being reminded to stay safe whilst having fun. Officers are asking trick or treaters to act responsibly on Halloween and to respect the wishes of people who don’t want to take part.

Here is some helpful advice to help you stay safe:

  • Avoid knocking on doors where you see a ‘No Trick or Treat’ sign.
  • Always go trick or treating with an adult.
  • Plan your route before setting off – only visit houses where you or your friends know the residents.
  • Be visible, so motorists and other pedestrians can see you.
  • Don’t talk to strangers on the street.
  • Don’t enter any house, stay on the doorstep.
  • Stay with the people you are with - do not go off on your own.
  • Stay in areas that are well lit with street lights. Take a torch with you just in case.
  • Be careful not to frighten vulnerable people, especially the elderly.

If you feel threatened or vulnerable over Halloween, or see any suspicious behaviour, please call the States of Jersey Police on 612612.
