The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) has announced trick-or-treat hours for Halloween in Indianapolis and is also offering tips to help trick-or-treaters stay safe.

Trick-or-treat hours in Indianapolis will be from 6 – 8 p.m., Mon., Oct. 31. The IMPD is planning extra patrols and enforcement in neighborhoods during that time.

Trick-or-treaters can also receive treats from their neighborhood police officers at several IMPD District Roll Calls:

• Southeast District, 1150 Shelby St., 4 – 7 p.m.
• North District, 3120 E. 30th St., 4 – 7 p.m.
• East District, 201 N. Shadeland Ave., 4 – 7 p.m.
• Southwest District, 551 King Ave., 6 – 8 p.m.

If you are participating in this year’s Halloween festivities please consider the following safety tips:

• Wear light-colored clothing short enough to prevent tripping and add reflective tape
• Wear fire-resistant costumes
• Make sure children can see well through face masks
• Don’t wear masks or disguises into businesses
• Adults should accompany young children and children with special needs
• Go out in daylight hours if possible or carry a flashlight if you’ll be out after dark
• Motorists are reminded to slow down and be aware of their surroundings
• Only give and accept wrapped or packaged treats
• Examine all treats before allowing children to eat them. If you find a suspicious item, contact police as soon as possible at 327-3811; if injury is involved, dial 911
• Avoid props such as toy guns, which can look real
• Consider block parties instead of trick-or-treating
• Don’t fire guns – it’s illegal and – what goes up, must come down
• Check the weather and have appropriate dress under costumes in the event of cold temperatures
