Halloween - No Trick or Treat

If you don't want to be disturbed or to avoid trick or treaters this year, the Hampshire Constabulary has a poster you can download, print out and display it by your front door.

You can find their poster and some other useful information at:  Halloween - No Trick or Treat

It is however worth repeating some of the advice they give on that page.

Some advice for the elderly or vulnerable members of our community staying home this Halloween:

  • If you do not know who is calling at your house, you do not need to open the door.
  • Try to see who is at the door by looking through a spy hole or window before opening the door.
  • If you have a chain on your door - keep this in place when opening the door.
  • If you feel threatened in your home, please contact the police

Hampshire Constabulary has prepared some advice for children and their parents:

  • If your child is going outside in a costume - make sure they are wearing reflective clothing or add reflective tape to their clothes.
  • Carry a torch and consider road safety at all times.
  • If your child is going out trick or treating - make sure they go out in a group, preferably accompanied by an adult.
  • Older children should let you know where they are going and what time they will be back.
  • Children should carry a mobile phone in a pocket or bag.
  • Make sure your children know not to enter anyone's house or to accept lifts from strangers.

Visit the Hampshire Constabulary website for more information and to download the poster
