The Briefing – Trick or Treat Safety

Candy collecting safety tips from Chief of Police, Jim Bodine

by Home Page – October 26, 2017

On this edition of The Briefing, Police Chief Jim Bodine was once again kind enough to meet with us and offer some seasonally relevant advice. With the parade and candy collecting planned for Wellsboro between 5:00-8:00pm this Saturday, Chief Bodine begins with some trick-or-treating safety tips for parents taking their little ones door-to-door this year.

“We want everyone to have fun, but safety is paramount,” he asserts. He reminds parents to dress their children in bright colors and carry flashlights for maximum visibility to motorists. Parents are also encouraged to have children wait until after trick-or-treating to enjoy their candy, when parents have had a chance to look it over and make sure everything is safe for consumption.

Drivers on the road are encouraged to slow down and be extra cautious, as it can be difficult to detect little ones.
