Costumed people, walking down the street, bags in hand, calling for a handout….a typical Halloween in the neighborhood! Let’s enjoy this seasonal celebration. Here is what LBPD says (we were at the recent Eastside Police Advisory group)
- check on age appropriateness of your child’s activities
- all children should be accompanied by an adult
- Only visit homes that are well lighted and never go into a stranger’s home
- Apply reflective tape to clothing
- Motorists? – you have an important role to which is to SLOW DOWN
- There is a curfew for those 17 years and younger -they need to be off the street by 10pm unless supervised by an adult or returning from an organized activity/work.
What to do?

Community Meeting (Sept. 25th) – Super turn-out! Room filled at Rivera’s (thank you George and Family for hosting us). We had a report of grand theft auto’s in RP neighborhood – and no, we are not the center of this problem. Thank you Kenny for this excellent presentation. We’ll have more on this in the upcoming posts.
