Halloween Safety Tips and Curfew

In an effort to ensure a safe Halloween, South Brunswick Police Department is providing safety tips and a reminder of the Township curfew.
 Here are South Brunswick Police Halloween Safety Tips:
  • Make sure older children take friends and stay together while trick-or-treating.
  • Never send younger children out alone- they should be with a parent, guardian, or another trusted adult.
  • Always walk younger children to the door to receive treats.
  • Don’t let children enter a home unless you’re with them.
  • Be sure children do not approach any vehicle, occupied or not, unless you are with them.
  • Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating. Make sure you’re walking and not running from house to house.
  • Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation.
  • Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks.
  • Lower your risk of eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses.
  • Only walk on sidewalks. If not possible, walk along the far edge of the road facing traffic.
  • Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.
  • Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.
  • Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Don’t stop at dark houses. Never accept rides from strangers.
  • Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame resistant costumes.
