St. Lucie County Sheriff's Pumpkin Patrol in residential neighborhoods will provide comforting law enforcement presence on Halloween night, Sheriff Mascara announces
In addition to the regular St. Lucie County Sheriff's deputies  patrolling the county on Halloween night (Oct. 31), additional  deputies will also patrol in residential neighborhoods,  according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.

"The Pumpkin Patrol will give parents and trick-or-treaters an  extra level of comfort and security in residential  neighborhoods," said Sheriff Mascara.

On Monday, Oct. 31, from 5 to 9 p.m., there will be 13 Pumpkin  Patrol deputies supplementing regular zone patrol deputies.

Sheriff Mascara also advised parents to make sure their  children's costumes have reflective material so that motorists  can more easily see trick-or-treaters. He also asks that  parents make sure the costumes and masks don't restrict their  children's ability to see.

In addition, children are encouraged to accept only packaged  food items.
