KINGSTON POLICE COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS

PUMPKIN PATROL- “watching out for kids’ safety”

The Kingston Police Community Volunteers will hit the streets again this Halloween. The Volunteers and St Lawrence College Police Foundations students will be dedicating their time to keeping Halloween safe and fun for all. They will be the friendly eyes and ears that dedicate themselves to ensuring Halloween night in Kingston is a treat.

On the evening of the 31st, starting at 6:00 p.m. approximately 40 volunteers and students wearing traffic vests will be patrolling throughout the city either by walking or in police vehicles to ensure little ghouls and goblins stay safe.

The St. Lawrence students will stay out until 10:00 p.m. and the Community Volunteers will continue out on patrol as needed after that time.

Here are a few Halloween safety tips for parents and children:

  • Children should walk, not run, from house to house and stay on the sidewalk or at the side of road, facing traffic. They should only cross the road at the corner and look both ways before crossing.
  • Choose costumes that are loose enough to be worn over warm clothing, but not baggy enough that children trip over them.
  • Have an adult look over candy. “If in doubt, trash it” and contact Kingston Police.
