Salem Police Department Halloween Dress RehearsalSalem-News.com
We ask the entire community to assist us in making Halloween night safe and enjoyable for everybody
(SALEM, Ore.) - The Salem Police Department Crime Prevention Unit will host its 5th Annual Halloween Dress Rehearsal on Saturday, October 23, 2010, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the atrium of the Police Department at 555 Liberty St. SE, first floor.
The focus of the event is to have children's costumes ready to wear for a safe evening of Halloween trick-or-treating. Children and their parents are invited to dress up in their Halloween costume and have it evaluated for safety based on common hazards, such as low visibility (specifically the reflectivity of the costume, as well as the visual limitations due to masks or wigs) and costume fit (length as a tripping hazard).
Glow lights, reflective tape and fluorescent bracelets will be provided (while supplies last) to help increase costume visibility. Parents and children can also review pedestrian and traffic safety.
Local vendors participating include Home Depot, Party Depot, Starbucks, and Target.
For families unable to attend the event, the following safety tips are offered:

Ready to walk the neighborhood:
If you are trick-or-treating with a vehicle, children should get in and out of the car on the curbside, not the traffic side.
For those who may be out and about driving on Halloween night, please remember:
