Trick-or-Treating this year? Here’s how to keep your family safe

News

TAZEWELL, VA (WVNS) — Halloween is just around the corner, and Tazewell County deputies want everyone to stay safe while trick-or-treating.

Major Harold Heatley said drivers need to be extra vigilant of pedestrians out trick or treating.

He said parents should make sure their kids are visible in their costumes. Heatley recommended giving them glow sticks to wear and make sure they are supervised.

“Our recommendation is children should always be supervised because, while you my trust your kid to go out, there may be an adult who could try to entice them to do something,” said Heatley.

Trick-or-Treaters in Tazewell County will also see extra deputies patrolling the streets on Halloween.
