Be spooky and safe this year, says JPD

The only scary thing this year should be the costumes.

Next Thursday is the spookiest day of the year, and the Juneau Police Department wants to make sure it’s a safe one.

JPD issued a release Friday asking people to be careful driving Thursday night, as there will be more pedestrians than usual out. Pedestrians are also advised to travel in packs, have adult supervision, carry a light source, and dress in bright colors, said Lt. Krag Campbell in the press release.

Do not accept rides from strangers or enter houses without parents, Campbell advises children. Only accept store-bought treats and inspect treats in a well-lit area before eating them. JPD will have reflective lights available for the public while supplies last at the station in Lemon Creek, anytime from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
