SPD wants your Halloween photo

Spokane Police are promoting healthy role models for children and would love to showcase any child dressing up as a law enforcement officer. E-mail photos of children dressed up in police outfits to; we will post the photos on our SPD Facebook page.  Any child submitting a photo is eligible for  "lunch with a cop" at their school. Those who wish to post photos themselves may do so on our Spokane Police Department Facebook page. Spokane Police would like to remind kids of a few Halloween safety tips before they embark on trick or treating October 31:

ADULT SUPERVISION: Children should never go into a stranger's house or ring the doorbell without a parent’s permission.  Never get into the car with someone you don't know.  Only trick or treat friendly homes.
MAP OUT YOUR ROUTE: Be careful crossing streets, look both directions to make sure no cars are coming. 
REMAIN VISIBLE:  Make sure to always carry a flashlight, glow stick or reflective tape to be more visible to cars.
SAFETY IN NUMBERS: Stay in a group while trick-or-treating, or go with an adult.
DON'T COVER FACES:  Paint kids faces instead of wearing masks so they can see when they are walking.
QUALITY CHECK TREATS:  Instruct children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by an adult.  And finally: HAVE FUN !

Via e-mail from Spokane Police Department spokesperson Jennifer DeRuwe
