Halloween is no longer a holiday celebrated only by children; teenagers and adults get excited this time of year as well and attend parties, travel to haunted houses, and wear costumes for fun. The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office will be on alert for any suspicious activity or hazardous environments in order to keep all Pinellas County citizens safe—both young and old.
Although your top priority may be getting costumes ready, we advise you to prepare for the spookiest night of the year by taking time to plan your evening and staying alert. According to the National Safety Council, children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car on Halloween. Whether you have children and anticipate a night of trick-or-treating, plan to stay at home, or go out for a night of adult fun, follow these important guidelines to stay safe.
