Cambs Police issue ‘no trick or treat’ posters in ASBO Halloween crackdown
POLICE are issuing posters to shops and homeowners across Fenland as part of a crackdown on anti-social behaviour during Halloween.
Officers are urging children taking part in festivities to stay safe and think about how their behaviour could intimidate others.
They have handed out posters to shops across the district which explain they will not be selling eggs or flour to any youngsters in the build up to the night.
‘No trick or treat’ posters, which can be displayed in doors or windows, can also be downloaded from the force’s website - www.cambs.police.uk - for homeowners who wish not to take part in the celebrations.
Sally Davies, crime reduction manager, said: “We will be increasing our patrols on the evening to ensure minimal disruption.
“We want everyone taking part to enjoy themselves but not at the expense of others.
“If children see the ‘no trick or treat’ posters I would urge them not to knock on the door and if people say they are not interested to respect that.”
