'No Trick or Treat' campaign

West Mercia Police is running its 'No Trick or Treat' campaign once again this year to ensure everyone has a safe Halloween.

Youngsters who are going out trick or treating are being urged to have fun without causing distress to other people.

Police are encouraging residents to display a specially designed ‘No Trick or Treat' sign in their window or door if they do not wish to be disturbed by nuisance visitors on Wednesday 31st October or over the weekend.

Mike Stephenson, Crime Risk Advisor, West Mercia Police, said: "We have specially designed 'No Trick or Treat' posters, which carry advice for householders on the back. Trick or treaters are asked to show respect and move on if they see one of the posters."
