Tonight, trick-or-treaters of all ages will knock on doors throughout Lubbock looking for treats. But before they head out, police say there are a few things they should remember. NewsChannel 11's Suleika Acosta brings us some safety tips.
Neighborhoods everywhere will be canvassed with trick-or-treaters tonight. Police urge parents to keep a close eye on their children at all times. They say you should only approach homes with porch lights on. Some sex offenders will be required to have their porch lights off. They must be inside their homes, their blinds must be closed and they can not answer the door."They can not have any contact with children on Halloween and we'll have officers checking them," says Sergeant. Bill Casey with Lubbock Police Department.
Keep in mind only certain sex offenders are required to stay indoors. Police say parents should accompany their children while trick-or-treating. Kids should never go inside homes and they should stay in well lit areas in groups. It's also a good idea to carry a flashlight.
