Keep the fear out of fright night

As Halloween creeps closer, Suffolk Constabulary is reminding residents to stay safe this year, respect others and keep their tricks within the law.

Whilst Halloween is traditionally a night of fun, with dressing up costumes and trick-or-treating, please bear in mind there may be members of the public who do not wish to take part.

People knocking on the doors to residents they don’t know, particularly the vulnerable or older members of the community, can be both a distressing and intimidating experience.

To help householders and businesses in the run up to the day, two posters are available to download from the Suffolk Police website, indicating whether they would welcome trick-or-treaters or not. These can be downloaded by clicking HERE
