Buffalo, NY –Mayor Byron W. Brown and the Buffalo Police Department want to wish everyone a safe and fun Halloween night. As Halloween 2023 approaches two weeks from today, Mayor Brown issued a few safety reminders.

HALLOWEEN IS FOR CHILDREN IN COSTUMES

To minimize the safety risks that occur when older youth go door-to-door until late at night, the City of Buffalo’s recommended Halloween Trick-or-Treating cut-off policy is 8:00 pm.

DO NOT TURN OFF YOUR LIGHTS AND PRETEND YOU’RE NOT HOME

This is an open invitation for mischief. Keep your house well-lit.

A STRONG ADULT PRESENCE WILL SERVE AS A DETERRENT TO POTENTIAL MISCHIEF

Work with your block club or neighbors to form “Neighborhood Watch Teams”. Call 911 if you see any suspicious activity.
