Although not everyone celebrates Halloween, it is becoming increasingly popular to take your monsters and mummies out on the streets, demanding sweet treats!

To help you indicate whether you would enjoy a knock on the door come October 31, the Queensland Police Service has created these handy posters which you can use to thwart the witches and wizards or invite them in!

You can download a colour copy of the trick or treaters welcome here poster here, or a black and white copy here.

You can also download a copy of the no thanks poster here.

Whilst we all love a good scare and enjoy the kooky, spooky and altogether ooky-ness of Halloween, the safety of children is paramount.

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

  • Be accompanied by an adult monster at all times (or a responsible witch, ghost or vampire);
  • 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;
  • Never enter a stranger’s house, even if they have invited you in after knocking on their door; and
  • Consider joining your friends on a neighbourhood adventure – there is safety in numbers for little witches and ghouls.

Happy Halloween!
