Halloween Safety Tips From Branson Police

Press Release

Branson Police are reminding families to keep health and safety in mind this Halloween season. This year, Branson Police encourage alternative activities that are more low-risk. Some of those include the following:

  • Carve or decorate pumpkins outside while social distancing with neighbors or friends.
  • Have a virtual Halloween costume contest.
  • Set-up an outdoor movie night with the family.
  • Plan a Halloween scavenger hunt for children. Give them lists of Halloween-themed items to look for while they walk outdoors while admiring Halloween decorations.
  • Consider carefully planned organized events like the Branson Parks & Recreation Halloween Hayride & Haunted Barn.

If you decide to go trick-or-treating, here are some safety tips to remember:

  • Purchase flame-resistant costumes and make sure that masks do not obscure vision.
  • Make sure children are always visible by using flashlights, reflective material, and glow sticks.
  • Trick or treat as a family and only approach well-lit homes.
  • Only accept pre-packaged candy
  • Don’t assume motorists see you, they probably can’t.

As always, if you see anything suspicious call 911.
