  • Halloween is just a little more than a week away.
     
    That means on Oct. 31, young pirates, princesses and even a few ghosts and goblins will trek out ready to fill their bags with treats. Children in Norman, Noble, Lexington, Moore and Oklahoma City will visit neighborhoods as they trick-or-treat.
     
    Cleveland County deputies want kids to enjoy the holiday and offer a few safety reminders:
     
    • Wear costumes made of flame-retardant material
     
    • Make sure costumes are light reflective
     
    • Carry a flashlight
     
    • Never go into a stranger’s home
     
    • Trick-or-treat with an adult
     
    • Don’t eat unwrapped candy
     
    Cleveland County Sheriff Joe Lester wishes everyone a safe and Happy Halloween.
     
    “I want all children to have fun as they trick-or-treat through neighborhoods but please remember these safety tips,” Lester said.
     
    Any questions regarding this press release and/or information can be addressed to Meghan McCormick, Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office, community liaison/public information officer. McCormick can be reached at (405) 701-8847.
