GWENT Police is working with local authorities, shops, the fire service, community groups, cadets, schools and youth services to help keep the number of anti-social behaviour incidents to a minimum this Halloween. Posters explaining the use of the ‘no callers please’ signs are being delivered to local schools, asking pupils to respect the signs that they see, and not call at any homes displaying them.
School Community Police Officers are also visiting assemblies this month to remind school pupils about the impact of anti-social behaviour on other people, and reinforce the consequences of this type of behaviour.
Local shops have also got on board with the campaign, and will be refraining from selling flour and eggs to under-18s during the week of Halloween and will be displaying posters to show their support.
Police are also reminding residents if they would prefer not to have Halloween callers at their door then they can pick up a free ‘no callers please’ sign from their local Neighbourhood Policing Team and community venues. You can also download one from the Gwent Police website: www.gwent.police.uk/advice-and-guidance/community/halloween-safety/
