IMPD Announces Indianapolis Trick-or-Treat Hours

IMPD LogoThe 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., Monday, October 31, 2016. 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
