Halloween is just under two weeks away and little ghosts, witches and monsters will soon be descending on the streets.
Kamloops RCMP reminds people of some safety tips to make sure they have a spooky and safe night.
“Over the next few weeks, police and RCMP volunteers will be visiting schools and talking to students about Halloween safety, but it’s very important that those messages are followed up at home,” Cpl said. Dana Napier.
“We want a nice evening to stay that way.”
