Trick-or-treating with EBRSO deputies
EAST BATON ROUGE- The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office will host its annual Trick-or-Treat with Deputies on Halloween.
The event will take place at the Elvin Street BREC Park from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.
Trick-or-Treat with Deputies is a free event that provides a fun and safe environment for children. The event will have food, entertainment, a costume contest and more.
EBRSO tips to keep children safe during Halloween:
Accompany children under 12.
Plan a safe route with good lighting. Give your children a flashlight with fresh batteries or a glow stick to increase visibility.
Pin a slip of paper with your child's name, address and phone number inside a pocket in case he or she gets separated from the group.
Make sure costumes are flame-resistant and fit correctly.
Inspect treats before eating. Throw out unwrapped or unpackaged candy.
Look both ways before crossing the street and check for approaching vehicles.
Cross the street only at corners.
Stay in familiar neighborhoods and only visit houses with lights on.
If you visit a stranger’s house, accept treats only at the door. Don’t go inside.
Use face paint or make-up instead of masks. Masks can obstruct your vision.
Slowdown in residential neighborhoods.
When driving, watch for children walking along roadways and curbs – one quick move and they could be in your path.
Enter and exit driveways carefully.
Use your vehicle’s headlights, even during the day, so you are visible.
When driving children to and from holiday events, have them enter and exit at the curbside of the vehicle only.
