Police hope for weekend free from Halloween horrors and firework fiascos
POLICE are hoping for a weekend free from Halloween horrors and firework fiascos.
A rise in anti-social behaviour has been seen nationally in the days and weeks around Halloween and bonfire night and Gloucestershire Police are eager to buck the trend in the county this year.
Chief Superintendent Nigel Avron said: “Combating anti social behaviour is a priority for us all year round however it is an issue that is especially prevalent at the end of October and beginning of November.
“Whilst the majority of people set out to enjoy Halloween and bonfire night with good intentions there are there are a minority who use it as an excuse to act irresponsibly.
“Vulnerable people can be left feeling scared and worried because of uninvited trick or treating and firework misuse.”
For those who want to avoid trick-or-treaters a police poster can be downloaded at www.gloucestershire.police.uk and placed in your window.
You can also ask your local police officer for a hard copy of the poster.
