LOGAN — Law enforcement is encouraging everyone to be safe while celebrating Halloween Tuesday evening. Officers, troopers and deputies will be increasing their patrols through neighborhoods, ensuring that kids are having a fun time.
Logan City Police Chief Gary Jensen hopes parents will instruct their children on how to be cautious while trick or treating. He also encourages kids to go out in groups and have an adult with them.
“We would like to suggest that kids don’t go in houses,” suggested Chief Jensen. “Simply wait at the doorstep to receive their treat before they run onto the next house.
“This night is supposed to be a great time for kids and adults alike, and the only thing that could get in the way of a wonderful evening and wonderful holiday, is an accident.”
Officers encourage kids to use sidewalks instead of roadways, to travel from house to house and be respectful of people’s property. They should also use crosswalks when available.
Cache County Sheriff Chad Jensen encourages parents to make sure their trick or treaters can been seen.
“Have either bright colors or have reflective material on their costumes,” said Sheriff Jensen. “A flashlight could be used as well.
“Out in the county, there is a lot of streets that don’t have street lamps or street lights and it gets really dark in some of those places.”
Most importantly, drivers need to slow down and watch for kids, while driving through neighborhoods.
