Halloween is a fun time for many families. However, it can be a dangerous time, also. The Essex Fells Police would like to ask that motorist take extra precautions around dusk and early evening on Halloween (Friday, October 31st). Children have a tendency to become very excitable during the trick or treat activities and may inadvertently get themselves into harm’s way in our neighborhoods. The Essex Fells Police Department will continue our “no tolerance policy” dealing with criminal mischief. The Police Department will have additional officers patrolling on Thursday and Friday evenings in marked and unmarked vehicles, motorcycle as well as bicycle patrols.
