Delta Police are preparing for this year’s Halloween celebrations with extra enforcement on the streets to ensure everyone stays safe.

Given the excitement of young children on Halloween night, we ask drivers to take extra time and attention to watch out for the Trick or Treaters.

Last minute safety tips to make for a spooktacularly safe night;

  • Plan your route ahead of time.
  • Trick or treat in familiar neighborhoods.
  • Carry a flashlight with fresh batteries.
  • Stay on the sidewalks and off of the streets. Cross only at intersections and designated crosswalks.
  • Follow traffic signals and don’t jaywalk.
  • Apply reflective tape to your Halloween costumes.

Delta Police remind everyone that no one may possess fireworks unless over 18 years old and a holder of a valid Fireworks Permit, obtained from the Delta Fire Department at the cost of $200 and at least 10 days prior to the event. If anyone is found in possession of fireworks (without a permit), a fine may be issued;

  • Possession of fireworks without a permit – Fine $175.
  • Sell, give or trade fireworks – Fine $225.

Delta Police anticipate that we will busy throughout Halloween night with more calls for service than a typical Monday. We ask everyone to ensure that they celebrate in a safe and responsible manner
