Plum police give safety tips for trick or treating


Plum police offered some safety tips for families participating in the borough’s trick or treat activities.

Trick or treat is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Oct. 31.

Police recommend the following:

1) Trick or Treat in a group rather than by yourself.

2) Young children should be accompanied by an adult.

3) Carry a flashlight or glow stick, or place reflective tape on your costume so drivers can see you.

4) Walk on a sidewalk if one is available, or walk on the left side of the roadway, facing oncoming traffic.

5) Do not walk between parked cars.

6) Only visit homes where the lights are on.

7) Always wait until you return home to have your parents check your candy before consuming any of it.

Police will have additional personnel on duty to assist with trick or treat.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
