Trick-or-treaters should never enter a stranger’s house and should stay on the sidewalk and to the left side of roads.

Parents and guardians were recommended to plan a trick-or-treating route only in neighborhoods they are familiar with. Parents were also recommended to closely examine all trick-or-treat candy for anything suspicious.

Drivers were asked to slow down in neighborhoods.
