Extra Patrols Brought In To Keep Halloween Safe

It's almost time for the wee ghosts and goblins to go seeking treats.

Police agencies in the area are planning in advance for the extra people and children going door to door after dark.

Sgt Peter Breen of the Rothesay Regional Police tells CHSJ News kids should wear reflective costumes so they can be seen adding they do bring in extra patrols for Halloween night.

He says every year they triple the numbers of officers working and some might get sent home early but they can keep them all night if they want too.

As for mischief, they do experience some problems on Halloween night so having more officers out and about helps out with that as well.
