They advise any children under 12 years old should be accompanied by an adult during trick-or-treating activities.
Participants should only cross streets when it is safe to do so and at crossing locations. The state police also advised drivers to be aware of children crossing roadways and suggested parents add reflective tape to costumes to help with visibility at night.
The state police reminded drivers and pedestrians alike not to be distracted by electronic devices during the hours designated for Halloween activities.
Finally, they advise parents should inspect all candy and treats collected by children before consumption.
