Police release downloadable poster to stop trick-or-treaters knocking doors

Harry Leach 31st Oct, 2019

OFFICERS from Droitwich’s Safer Neighbourhood Team will be carrying out patrols this evening to make sure people behave while trick-or-treating.

A West Mercia Spokesperson said: “Halloween is not for everyone.

“This time of year can be a nuisance as your evenings are interrupted with people knocking on your doors for treats.

“Most of these children or teenagers are just getting involved in the Halloween celebrations and will be friendly.

“If you rather your home was not visited, we have a ‘sorry no trick or treat’ downloadable poster that you can display in your window.
