Law officers keep watch on tricks and streets

October 31, 2003
Albany- The pumpkin patrol was out in full force to watch over trick-or-treaters.

"Going all through the city giving out candy and making contact with the kids and neighborhood families and so forth as the night goes on," said Brian Peterson with the Albany Police Department.

As the night did go on, the streets filled with candy seekers in the form of pirates and even pint-sized incredible hulks, who didn't actually know the Hulk.

"I've seen the movie though," said 6-year-old Joshua Moore.

But costumes didn't really matter. It's the candy that counted. And for those turtles who wanted to find their Halloween thrills inside, the Albany Police made sure they had a place to go.

"We've had a little scary party as you walk in with the coffin, music and sound and allow the kids to enjoy the atmosphere where it's safe," Peterson said.
