Halloween Advice and Posters for Download

Keep your Halloween free of horrors

Residents are being encouraged to display posters in their front windows this Halloween to show whether or not they welcome visits from trick or treaters.  Simply click the images on this page to download printable versions.

The posters can also be picked up at Chiltern District Council, Amersham Police Station and Chesham Police Station or can be downloaded from the Chiltern District Council website at http://bit.ly/pDE0A4. They are a simple but effective way to prevent the distress that unexpected callers can cause for vulnerable members of the community, while making sure that those who want to take part can enjoy all the tricks and treats they like.

If you are planning to go out trick or treating, the advice is to keep an eye out for the posters and make sure you behave considerately. Trick or treating can be lots of fun, but it is not an excuse for irresponsible or antisocial behaviour. Tricks like throwing flour and eggs, graffiti, or other vandalism can be treated as criminal damage and the police will prosecute anyone found breaking the law.

Ch Insp Ian Hunter ,  Police Commander for the Chiltern area, said : “My teams will be carrying out patrols in the evenings to make sure people who are trick or treating are doing so in a friendly manner and not causing a nuisance.

“I know for some people this time of year can be a bother as your evenings are interrupted with people knocking on your doors for treats.

“Most of these children or teenagers are just getting involved in the Halloween celebrations and will be friendly.

“At any point if you feel unsafe:

  • Don’t open your door if you’re unsure who is there. Use your spy-hole, look out of a window, and use your door chain if you do decide to open your door.
  • Have a contact number of a close relative or good neighbour to hand by your telephone, just in case you need to phone them.
  • If you are part of a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, let your coordinator know that you will be on your own at Halloween. If you are a coordinator, please identity people in your scheme that may be vulnerable and offer them reassurance.

Anyone affected by the few individuals who use trick or treating as an excuse to commit crime or antisocial behaviour can report it by contacting Thames Valley Police on 0845 8 505 505. From 14th November 2011 callers will be able to use the new national non-emergency number 101 to call Thames Valley Police. In an emergency, or if a crime is in progress, call 999.
