PHILADELPHIA — Kids of all ages may want to keep an extra eye out while trick-or-treating on Thursday night, always for safety but especially because the Philadelphia Police Department’s Halloween Candy Giveaway will be taking place!
All police personnel assigned to patrol districts, and working in the evening when trick-or-treaters are out, will have candy to give to any youthful ghouls, goblins and other costumed entities who see them.
So a car door will work just as well as the door to a home!
At the same time, the Community Relations Unit will be conducting a Halloween “Snap It and Share It” on social media.
Parents can share pictures of their children with the hashtags #PhillyPolice or #CandyCopsTrickorTreat on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
