Dorset Police Step Up Patrols In The Run Up To Halloween

Not everyone enjoys a good trick or treat - that is the latest advice from Dorset Police.

Extra patrols have been put in place for Halloween on Wednesday.

Officers say that if homes are displaying NO trick or treat signs callers should politely move on.

Despite the fact that incidents of anti-social behaviour in Dorset have fallen dramatically in the past year, no one under the age of 18 will be able to buy eggs, flour or fireworks over Halloween.

Officers have also reminded people that playing tricks can be a criminal offence and that criminal damage - such as throwing eggs and flour - could result in a fine or a prison sentence.

Superintendent Dave Thorp said: "We appreciate that people want to go out and enjoy the Halloween festivities and go out trick or treating but it is important to respect the views of others who do not want to participate. We will have extra patrols out and will take action against anyone found to be committing crime or anti-social behaviour."
