As ghouls and goblins come out this Halloween, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Jeff Shaver would like to encourage everyone to play it safe on Halloween!
*Plan your route in advance. Go only to houses you know.
*Never go out alone! An adult or older, responsible youth should escort children.
*Walk on sidewalks, not in the street!
*Stay in well lighted areas & take a flashlight.
*Pin a slip of paper with your child’s name, address & telephone number inside of their clothing.
*Wear light-colored costumes or use reflective tape.
*Don’t talk to strangers!
*PARENTS…check to see if a sex offender lives in a neighborhood you plan to visit!
*Check your treats! With candy or goodies, when in doubt, throw it out.
*DRIVERS…Keep an eye open for children who forget the rules, use caution when traveling and obey posted traffic signs especially in neighborhoods.
*HOMEOWNERS…have a well lit home both inside and out to prevent vandalism and injuries, remove all obstacles from their lawns to avoid injuries and don’t use candles in ornaments that could set a fire.
