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.
