Lots of young people enjoy Halloween responsibly and cause no harm, but for many in the community Halloween causes fear.
Many people, especially the elderly or vulnerable, are frightened of youngsters trick or treating at night. For this reason trick or treat posters specifying youngsters not to knock on doors are available to be printed and displayed in a window or front door.
The Community Safety Partnership ask that if these posters are displayed, that the residents wishes are respected and properties with these posters are not visited by trick or treaters.
The posters can be picked up at our offices at 66 High Street, Aylesbury, HP20 1SD or by downloading it below. Alternatively if you are unable to pick up or download a poster and would like to request one for yourself or your friends please call 01296 585061.
3 Quick tips if you feel unsafe:
- Don’t open your door if you feel unsafe . Use the spy hole first or use the door chain if you want to open the door.
- Have a contact number of a neighbour, family member or friend at hand or by your telephone just in case you need to phone them.
- If you are part of a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, let your coordinator know that you will be on your own at Halloween. If you are a coordinator, please identity people in your scheme that may be vulnerable and offer them reassurance.
To report anti-social behaviour call 101, the police non emergency number. If you feel threatened or if there is a crime in progress call 999.
