Stay safe

Child safety

Parents and carers can follow this simple advice and keep their loved ones safe:

  • Know where you child is, especially in the evenings
  • Ensure your child is safe in a group with others, not out alone
  • Advise young people to leave their valuables at home
  • Go trick-or-treating with your child
  • Ask your child to avoid knocking at the homes of elderly people, as it can sometimes be intimidating and cause unnecessary worry
  • Keep fireworks in a safe place in the house
  • Report any anti-social behaviour or concerns to your local safer neighbourhood police teams
  • Attend organised events wherever possible
