Halloween Safety Tips

Happy Halloween! As a reminder, Lindenhurst Trick or Treating hours are today, October 31st, from 4:00- 7:00 p.m. The Lindenhurst Police Department would like to remind residents of some safety tips before heading out for Halloween trick-or-treating.

  • Plan Ahead- Set a designated route for your trick-or-treaters to follow. Be sure to select a meeting point within the route if someone gets separated. Make sure trick-or-treaters have a list of emergency contacts, including parents' phone numbers.
  • Road Safety- Always use crosswalks and obey traffic signals. Trick or Treaters should look both ways before crossing the street and walk on sidewalks when possible. If driving, please drive slowly and be alert!
  • Costume Safety- Ensure costumes fit well to prevent tripping or falling.
  • Trick or Treating Supervision- An adult or a responsible older sibling should always accompany young children. If older kids are trick or treating, establish a curfew and check-in times.
