  • 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.
