Cleveland County deputies urge safety on Halloween


Halloween is less than a week away.

That means on Oct. 31, young pirates, princesses and even a few ghosts and goblins will trek out ready to fill their bags with treats. Children in Norman, Noble, Lexington, Moore and Oklahoma City will visit neighborhoods as they trick-or-treat.

Sheriff Joe Lester and his deputies want children to enjoy the holiday. Lester urges adults and kids to remember a few safety tips before leaving home Halloween night:
• Wear costumes made of flame-retardant material
• Make sure costumes are light reflective
• Carry a flashlight
• Never go into a stranger’s home
• Trick-or-treat with an adult
• Don’t eat unwrapped candy

Lester wishes everyone a safe and Happy Halloween.

“I want all children to have fun as they trick-or-treat through neighborhoods but please remember these safety tips,” Lester said.

Any questions regarding this press release and/or information can be addressed to Meghan Jackson, Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office, community liaison/public information officer. Jackson can be reached at (405) 701-8847.
