Stay Safe This Halloween
Devon And Cornwall police Say Stay Safe and Have Fun This Halloween
Devon and Cornwall Police are reminding people that Halloween is not an excuse to run riot.
They'll have extra officers on patrol in town centres across the weekend, both in plain clothes and in uniform.
Sergeant Kirsty Saundercock says "We would ask parents to have a chat with their children before they go out and just remind them of the etiquette".
As Part of Operation Meteor, officers have been working with shops to stop the sale of eggs and flour to any youngsters looking to carry out pranks.
They've created a poster for anyone who doesn't want to be bothered by Trick Or Treaters this weekend, and say you should put it in your window if you don't want people knocking at your door.

For parents of little ghosts and ghouls, Devon and Cornwall Police have these tips to bear in mind before heading out to Trick Or Treat.
Always be accompanied by an adult when you are trick-or-treating.
Only go to houses of people you know and who are happy for you to call.
Stay safe, keep to places that you know and are well lit. Do not take short cuts through gardens, alleyways or parks.
Watch out for traffic - drivers might not see you.
If you are wearing a mask make sure that you can see where you are going and are aware of your surroundings.
Carry a torch and a fully charged mobile phone (if you have one).
