RIPON POLICE INCREASE HALLOWEEN SAFETY PATROLS
Ripon CA. – The Ripon Police Department is working hard to help our children have a safe and happy Halloween. The police department’s uniformed patrol force along with our Volunteers in Police Services (VIPS) will be increasing patrols of local neighborhoods tomorrow night, to help ensure the safety of our children. If you see any suspicious activity, or if you need assistance, call the police department, or flag down a passing officer or volunteer.
HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS FROM THE RIPON POLICE DEPARTMENT:
Children:
Limit trick-or-treating to your own neighborhood where people are more likely to watch out for your well-being
Travel in groups. It’s fun & safe
Stay in a well lit area and carry a flashlight
Visit well lit homes
Never enter a stranger’s home, even if invited inside
Have an adult inspect your candy for signs of tampering before eating • Don’t eat anything that looks suspicious
Costumes:
Be highly visible to motorists
Wear light colored costumes with reflective tape
Carry a flashlight
If you wear a mask, cut the eye holes larger to maximize vision
Make sure costumes are flame resistant
Avoid carrying sharp or pointed objects to prevent injuries
