Suffolk police have launched a series of posters advising people how to stay safe over Halloween.
As part of the constabulary’s campaign officers will be visiting schools to talk with students about the importance of behaving responsibly.
Police will be going into shops advising store assistants not to sell flour or egg to children in the days before Halloween.
Chief inspector Jenny Powell said: “We are not trying to spoil the fun of Halloween but we would like trick or treaters to be mindful of the impact that their activity may have on others particularly the elderly or vulnerable.
“Some residents might be distressed by strangers knocking at their door during the evening so we are asking people not to call at houses displaying one of the posters.”
Posters are available to advertise whether a household wants to take part in the celebrations as well as one asking parents to think about their children’s safety.
They will be given out to schools and businesses across the county.
