Next week, little zombies, ghosts and witches will take to the streets for Halloween trick or treating.

We understand that not everybody celebrates this fang-tastic night, so we have created some posters that you can display on your door or in a prominent position at your home, indicating whether or not you welcome trick or treaters, or don't wish to be disturbed.

While we all love a good scare, the Queensland Police Service wants to remind community members to creep it real and ensure the safety of children is top priority.

To make sure your Halloween doesn't become a nightmare, trick or treaters should:

  • Be accompanied by a trusted, responsible adult monster at all times;
  • Always walk, not run, between houses and stick to the footpath rather than the road;
  • Wear bright colours to enhance your visibility to passing motorists – Ghosts are only cool if you can see them!
  • Never enter a stranger's house, even if they have invited you in after knocking on their door;
  • Consider joining your friends on a neighbourhood adventure – there is safety in numbers for little witches and vampires; and
  • Trick or treating late into the night is very scary. Go home and dig into your cavity starter pack –  especially on a school night.

Have a fun and safe Halloween!

This is a joint initiative between the Queensland Police Service and Neighbourhood Watch.
