Halloween Safety TipsThe Knoxville Police Department offers the following tips for a safe Halloween.


  • Make sure your children wear a costume that fits so they don't trip over it

  • Make sure your children can see and hear well. If possible, wear face paint instead of a mask

  • Choose a costume that is light in color or put "glow in the dark" patches on it so your children are easily seen

  • Try to trick-or-treat when it is still light outside. Carry a flashlight in case of delay

  • Stay within your neighborhood and only visit homes you know or attend a church organized event instead of door-to-door

  • An adult or older sibling should accompany younger children

  • Children should not go into homes or apartments

  • Use sidewalks, where possible, and obey traffic signals. Avoid walking in the street

  • You should set up rules for children to follow and review them before the children are allowed to trick-or-treat

  • Instruct children to accept only sealed treats and examine treats before allowing children to eat them

  • If you discover your child has received treats that have been tampered with, try to determine where they came from and report the incident to the police

    Those who welcome visits should turn on their porch lights
