Findlay Police Department Talks Halloween Safety

The Findlay Police Department is reminding parents and kids about some Halloween safety tips as Trick-or-Treat events approach.

Findlay Crime Prevention Officer Brian White was on with WFIN’s Chris Oaks to discuss Halloween safety.



He reminds parents to make sure their child can safely get around in their costume and can see well if they’re wearing a mask.

He says bright costumes and those with flashing lights are great ideas.

Brian reminds Trick-or-Treaters to stay in groups and to cross at designated crosswalks and intersections.

He also reminds drivers to keep an eye out for kids, especially in neighborhoods that don’t have many sidewalks.

He advises parents to check candy before allowing their kids to start eating it.

Brian says extra police officers will be out and about during Trick-or-Treat and the Halloween Parade.

Parents are encouraged to check the Sex Offender Database to see what offenders might be living in the area.
