The Ocala Police Department wants all citizens to enjoy a safe and happy Halloween.
The Ocala Police Department wishes everyone a very Safe and Happy Halloween

Halloween an extremely exciting time for our children, and many times this excitement can cause them to forget to be careful. We want all of the children in our
community to be safe and injury-free while enjoying this traditional holiday!

Simple common sense can do a lot to prevent tragedies from happening. The Ocala Police Department wants to remind all of our parents and guardians of these
basic tips for having a safe, as well as fun, Halloween.

Additionally, the Ocala Police Department wants citizens to be aware of other Halloween events we will be participating in over the Halloween weekend, outside of monitoring the Trick or Treating on Sunday, October 31, 2010.

On Friday, October 29, 2010, we will be participating in the City of Ocala Recreation and Parks Department’s “Mini Monster Boo Bash”. It is being held at the American Legion Hall and Tuscawilla Park, located at 516 NE Sanchez Ave., and will run from 5:30pm to 8:30pm. They will offer a hay ride, haunted village, storytelling, games with prizes, a bounce house, safety tips, Halloween activities and recreation based activities/games.

On Saturday, October 30, 2010, we will also participate in the Paddock Mall’s annual Safe Halloween Trick or Treat event. This will be held at the Paddock Mall, 3100 SW College Rd., and will run from 6pm to 8:30pm. The event will include candy, face painting, keepsake photos (fee applies), costumed characters, and vendor presentations.

The Ocala Police Department also encourages you to know your neighborhood before venturing out with your children to go Trick or Treating. Go to our Offender Watch link at http://www.icrimewatch.net/?AgencyID=54025 to research where sex offenders and/or predators may be living in your area.

Once again, the Ocala Police Department wishes all our citizens a safe and Happy Halloween!
