Po­lice Hal­loween plea

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

GUISERS are be­ing urged to re­spect the el­derly tonight. Po­lice are ask­ing those head­ing door-to-door as part of their Hal­loween cel­e­bra­tions to look out for signs that vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple may not want to an­swer – and to leave them be. “We would ask that you only go to houses of peo­ple you al­ready know and who are happy for you to call at their door,” said a po­lice spokes­woman. She added: “Show par­tic­u­lar con­sid­er­a­tion to the el­derly and re­spect any signs which sug­gest a home­owner does not wish any trick-or-treaters at their doorstep. “Of­fi­cers will be out pa­trolling com­mu­ni­ties across the area to help ev­ery­one cel­e­brate safely and re­spon­si­bly.”
