Halloween is meant to be spooky and fun, but sometimes this holiday can lead to mischievous behavior.
In this video, OSU Police Officer Leah Storm reviews important trick-or-treat safety.
A few tips to follow:
Make costumes as visible as possible so your kids (or you) are easy to spot at night. Put glow sticks around wrists and ankles or use reflective tape on costumes and shoes.
Make your house welcoming and safe. Clear all walkways leading to the house, be out on your porch welcoming trick-or-treaters, and don't use candles for decorations.
Visit neighborhoods you are familiar with. Use sidewalks while walking around neighborhoods, stay out of the roadways, and don’t eat any homemade items.
