Trick or treaters reminded to be respectful tonight as police issue 'no thank you' poster

More news, no ads


Thames Valley Police has issued this poster which can be cut out and displayed at the front doors or in prominent windows of residents who do not want to take part in Hallowe’en or trick or treat activities.
Children, teenagers and supervising parents are asked to be respectful to all residents, and not to knock at a house when one of the posters is displayed.
In the run-up to the spooky event, police have been working with schools and parents to raise awareness of the dangers and consequences of anti-social behaviour, with the aim of reducing incidents of nuisance and criminal damage that can happen at this time of year.
A statement released by Thames Valley Police read: “Many residents enjoy hallowe’en and view it as harmless fun, but for others it can be distressing receiving visits from unexpected callers, particularly the elderly and those that live alone.
“If you or your children see this flyer displayed please move on to the next house.
“Most people will have a pumpkin or Halloween decorations on display to welcome callers.”
We’ve inserted a copy of the poster for you to print and stick in a window or on your front door.
