QLD Police Release Ways To Warn Or Welcome Trick Or Treaters

Halloween is just around the corner.

And while we don’t celebrate to the same extent that Americans do, it is becoming a more popular holiday in Australia in recent years.

So how do you show your neighbourhood that you welcome trick or treaters? (Or alternatively let them know not to come knocking…)

The Queensland Police have created flyers that you can post on your property to make it clear that you are for or against the celebration.

No more awkwardly upsetting kids if you don’t have any candy to share!

You can download the flyers from the Police’s official website.


The initiative is part of neighbourhood watch. 

"We all love a good scare, but not when it comes to the safety of children. To make sure your Halloween doesn’t become a nightmare, Trick or Treaters should:

- Be accompanied by a mother or father monster at all times (or another responsible witch, ghost or vampire);

- Black cats love to slink around, but you should walk, not run, between houses and stick to the footpath rather than the road. Black cats don’t want to be seen, and for good reason, but if you wear black, it will reduce your visibility to passing motorists;

- Never enter a stranger’s house, even if they have invited you in after knocking on their door; and

- Consider joining your friends on your neighbourhood adventure – there is safety in numbers."
