Law Enforcers keep trick or treaters safe

October 31, 2007

Quitman - Some south Georgia Law Enforcers are creating alternative events to help keep trick or treaters safe on Halloween.

The Brooks County Sheriff's Office is holding their Safe Streets Halloween festival on the courthouse lawn.

They expect nearly two thousand children to brave their haunted house, explore the pumpkin patch, and of course trick or treat for candy.

They say the event gives parents another Halloween option where they know their kids and the candy will be safe.  "We are offering an alternative to children being out in the neighborhoods and on the streets trick or treating They can come up here and be with us where the candy is safe and there are plenty of officers around," says Sheriff Richard Chaffin.

The Lowndes County Sheriff's Office is also holding a trick or treat carnival on Prison Farm Road.

They'll have bounce houses, a petting zoo and one thousand pounds of candy to give away to trick or treaters.
