Summary:

This Thursday, 10/31/2019, is Halloween and the Juneau Police Department wishes to remind motorists that there will be more pedestrians on the street than normal. Please drive safely near pedestrians and watch for people running from house to house in neighborhoods.

Pedestrians are reminded to watch for motorists and cross streets at designated crosswalks if available. Pedestrians are advised to wear bright clothing, walk in groups, have adult supervision, and carry a light source. If trick or treating, do not enter a stranger's house and do not accept rides from people without your parents’ permission. Only accept unopened store bought treats and inspect the treats in a well-lit area at home before eating them.

JPD has purchased some reflective lights that are available to the public, while supplies last. The lights can be picked up at JPD, anytime next Monday-Thursday, 8:00am-4:30pm.

JPD hopes that everyone has a safe and happy Halloween.
