MPD want's everybody to enjoy Halloween safely. Township curfew for under 17 8:30pm Mischief Night & 10pm Halloween

Moorestown Police want everybody to enjoy Halloween safely. The Township curfew for those under 17 years of age is 8:30pm on Tuesday 10/30/18 for Mischief Night and 10pm on Wednesday 10/31/18 for Halloween.


•A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds.

•Have flashlights with fresh batteries for all children and their escorts.

•If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home.

•Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat.

•Because pedestrian injuries are the most common injuries to children on Halloween, remind Trick-or-Treaters:

◦Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going.

◦Remember reflective tape for costumes and trick-or-treat bags.

◦Carry a cellphone for quick communication.

◦Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk.

◦If no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic.

◦Never cut across yards or use alleys.

◦Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks (as recognized by local custom). Never cross between parked cars or out of driveways.

◦Don't assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing Trick-or-Treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn't mean others will!

•Notify the Police Department immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity. We are a call away at 856-234-8300 for non-emergencies. Call 911 for emergencies.
