CAM­BRIDGE — First re­spon­ders of Dorch­ester County handed out candy to more than 1,000 par­tic­i­pants at the 2nd an­nual Trunk or Treat event on Mon­day, Oct. 30.

The event is spon­sored by Cam­bridge Po­lice Depart­ment and Craig’s Drug­store.

This year, CPD was joined by Res­cue Fire Com­pany, Church Creek Fire Com­pany, and Sec­re­tary Fire Com­pany.

Kids sported cos­tumes of movie char­ac­ters, su­per­heroes, first re­spon­ders, and so much more to cel­e­brate the Hal­loween hol­i­day.

Event or­ga­niz­ers were pre­pared with more than 10,000 pieces of candy, and given 600 peo­ple had al­ready ar­rived less than half­way through the event, they were a bit wor­ried they may run out, ac­cord­ing to Mayor Vic­to­ria Jack­son-Stan­ley. She praised the com­mu­nity mem­bers for their pa­tience and co­op­er­a­tion in the face of long lines at the event.

“This is yet an­other op­por­tu­nity for the chil­dren to have a so­cial, good re­la­tion­ship with our po­lice depart­ment,” said Jack­son-Stan­ley. “They’re tak­ing the time to give back to our chil­dren. This trunk-or-treat was out of the hearts of the city po­lice depart­ment. I’m just so glad that I’m part of the City of Cam­bridge, a city that cares about each other, even if it’s just lit­tle steps. This is go­ing to bring good­will be­yond mea­sure. I’m proud of our po­lice depart­ment.”

Po­lice Board mem­ber Mi- chael Wheat­ley said he is proud to serve on the board, and praised Cam­bridge Po­lice Depart­ment for the great job they do, from special events to their ev­ery day ser­vice.
