With Halloween just a couple of days away, St. Louis County Police want to remind residents to make it a time of treat rather than trick.
Police are urging people to remember that Halloween is a time of high pedestrian and vehicle traffic and to remain cautious and aware while enjoying any festivities.
Officials say some important tips include, driving slowly through neighborhoods and having children stay in large groups as there is safety in numbers.
Staying in lighted areas is also a safety precaution.
County police chief Tim Fitch says they are offering Halloween Safety Centers and extra patrols throughout every precinct on Halloween night.
