Thomasville, GA - Thomasville Police Officers made their rounds to schools and day care centers in the area Wednesday to reminds children about Halloween safety.
One of their stops was at Scott Elementary School where they talked to a cafeteria full of excited students.
They reminded students to look both ways before crossing the street, to only go to houses that are lit up, and to wear form fitting, bright colored costumes.
Officers are also giving students a chance to get even more candy on Halloween with their, "Tip-Or-Treat" incentive.
"As a reward to the children who have attended some of the assemblies at the schools, they'll receive candy from our officers on Halloween Night while their out patrolling, however, they'll first have to provide officers with a safety tip they received at the assemblies," explained Lt. Eric Hampton with the Thomasville Police Department.
Thomasville Police say they plan on beefing up patrol Thursday night to ensure a safe and happy Halloween for everybody.
