The staff at the Brown County Sheriffs office are excited to announce that our 12th annual Trick-or-Treat night will be October 30th starting at 5 o’clock in our lobby. We are located at 709 Utah Street in Hiawatha.
The theme this year will be “WONDERPARK.” Some of the staff will be in kid friendly costumes and we invite ghosts and goblins to come and see us. We will be handing out treat bags with safety information, glow sticks, mood cups, candy and more. This is an event we all look forward to, and provides us a better opportunity to interact with kids and families in a positive way.
We would also like to encourage everyone to have a safe and happy Halloween and are asking that trick-or-treaters follow some basic safety rules:
LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE CROSSING THE STREET
STAY IN WELL LIT AREAS
DO NOT TRICK-OR-TREAT ALONE, ALWAYS GO WITH PARENTS, FRIENDS OR FAMILY
NEVER GET IN A STRANGE VEHICLE OR A HOME YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH
WEAR LIGHT COLORED OR REFLECTIVE COSTUMES, REFLECTIVE TAPE ADDED TO A COSTUME HELPS ILLUMINATE YOU AT NIGHT
MAKE SURE YOU CAN SEE PROPERLY OUT OF YOUR MASK/COSTUME
MAKE SURE TO HAVE A FLASHLIGHT WITH YOU
ONLY TRICK-OR-TREAT AT HOMES WITH PORCH LIGHTS ON AND PLACES YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH
YOUNGER CHILDREN SHOULD ALWAYS BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT
LET YOUR PARENTS OR CAREGIVERS INSPECT YOUR CANDY BEFORE EATING
