Halloween Troublemakers Will be Deterred, Say Cheshire Police

A letter to AboutMyArea Neston readers, from Assistant Chief Constable Sarah Boycott.
Your readers will be aware of our annual campaign targeting anti-social behaviour during the Halloween period.
Once again, our officers will be out and about in your community providing reassurance and a visible presence to deter troublemakers and take action where required.
This time of year is always one of our busiest periods, and I would remind the younger members of our communities to behave responsibly and respect residents who may not want to be disturbed by trick or treaters.
Parents, you have your part to play in this too and I would ask you please to be aware of what your children are up to and where they're going around Halloween. Doing so will help them to stay out of trouble, and it will make our jobs easier too.
Meanwhile, officers have been handing out our ‘no trick or treaters' posters to the local community in the run up to Hallowe'en while shops have also been provided with posters to prevent flour and eggs being sold during this period. The trick or treat posters indicate whether your home welcomes trick or treaters or would prefer not to be disturbed. These can also be downloaded from our website, www.cheshire.police.uk
If you do have any concerns please call us on 101, or of course dial 999 if it's an emergency. I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Halloween.
Assistant Chief Constable Sarah Boycott
