ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The City of Albany wants trick-or-treaters to collect candy on Saturday instead of Sunday and police want to make sure they're safe while doing it.

APD will have their annual Pumpkin patrol on neighborhood streets Saturday.

They want drivers to be to extra careful and drive under the posted speed limit where children are walking.

They also say kids shouldn't wear masks that cover their faces because that can block their vision.

"If you send your child out we want the children to walk in groups and walk on the sidewalks as much as possible. We also want them to start early, don't want to wait until dark falls," said Sgt. Kinshishi Adams, Albany Police Department.

Police say it's also a good idea to check the candy before your kids dig in to make sure it hasn't been tampered with.
