Halloween Is Creeping Closer

Home
Halloween is creeping closer and we know this year it will be different with the government restrictions currently in place.
 
Remember to follow government guidelines in your local area to help keep you and the people you care about safe.
 
There are plenty of fun activities to keep your family busy – pumpkin carving, dressing up, arts and crafts, colouring pumpkin pictures and sticking them up in windows for other children to spot.

No trick-or-treaters
Are you worried about people knocking your door? Download our Covid-19 trick or treat card to let people know you don’t want any unknown visitors. You can print them out for elderly or vulnerable neighbours if you know they’re worried about unknown callers too.
 
Remember, don’t call at homes with the ‘no trick or treat’ sign up.
Dealing with anti-social behaviour
We sometimes see a rise in anti-social behaviour in the days between Halloween and Bonfire Night. If you are worried about anti-social behaviour please follow this advice:

·         You can report anti-social behaviour on our website via live chat
·         Keep a diary of anti-social behaviour incidents.  This gives us a history of events and can be used as part of the evidence gathering process
 
Information we receive from the community helps us identify common issues, hotspot locations, repeat offenders and patterns of behaviour
 
We also work closely with partner agencies, such as local councils, housing providers and schools, to tackle issues jointly, giving us greater powers to improve people’s lives.
 
Visit our website for crime prevention advice and safety tips.
 
To report a crime or incident, please contact us via Live Chat on our website:
www.west-midlands.police.uk
between 8am – midnight or call 101. Always dial 999 in an emergency.
