Halloween Saftey Tips:
- Parents should be familiar with homes and occupants on their child’s trick-or-treat route.
Parents may register for FREE at AlertID.com, enter their address and instantly see an easyto-
read map showing sex offenders residing or working in the vicinity as well as view sex offenders
wherever they are with the AlertID free mobile app. Members also receive alerts when
new sex offender data becomes available.
- Children should wear reflective tape on their costumes and carry flashlights or glow sticks
when trick-or-treating during evening hours.
- Snap a photo of the child prior to heading out on Halloween night and upload it, along with
an accurate, up-to-date description, to AlertID’s My Family Wallet™ (located on AlertID’s free
mobile app). If the child goes missing, members may access the information on their smartphones
and send it instantly to law enforcement when every moment counts.
- Only approach homes that are well lit, both inside and out; instruct children never to enter a
home without parental permission.
- Children should always trick-or-treat with a trusted adult or older child to supervise.
- Younger children should always be accompanied all the way to the door of the home when
- In the event they are grabbed by a stranger, instruct children to yell “This person is trying
to take me!” or “This is not my mother/father!” and to resist by pulling, walking or running
- Stay in contact with your neighbors not only on Halloween night, but also throughout the
year, by using AlertID’s Secure Social Network. See something suspicious in the neighborhood
while out trick-or-treating? Members may send an alert to the neighborhood or homeowner’s
association Secure Social Network group, or even instantly report it directly to the
Department of Homeland Security.
