Stephens County Sheriff Randy Shirley is urging people heading out for trick-or-treating to remember to stay safe.
The sheriff said there are a number of useful safety tips to keep in mind during Halloween.
“We would just caution kids, teens, and parents to make sure they look both ways when crossing the street, walk on the sidewalk (if possible), wear reflective clothing, and have a flashlight because it gets dark earlier now,” said Shirley. “We also want you to go into neighborhoods that you know, that your parents know. Teach your children (to) always stay in well-lit areas.”
The sheriff also noted that many area churches are holding Halloween events this evening as well.
