Columbia Police Department would like to remind everyone to be cautious in their travels this afternoon, as many of our youth will be on the streets trick or treating for Halloween.

Columbia Police Department will have increased patrols throughout the night and will have zero tolerance for irresponsible illegal behavior. We ask that you help us make this a safe Halloween for the kids. And remember:

- Reduce your speed especially in residential neighborhoods.

- Do not drive wearing a mask or any costume that obscures your vision

- Try to keep your children in well lit areas.

- Stress to your children that they are not to enter any home without your permission.

- Wear bright color costumes if possible, if not please carry a flashlight, glow stick or reflective material.

- Throw away any candy that appear to have been opened already.

- Report any suspicious activity you may see to 911 and an officer will respond.

We would also like to remind everyone of Treats on the Town which is held on the public square. We will be shutting the square down at 2:30pmCT, today, Monday, October 31, 2016, so participants can begin setting up their sites. Trick or treating will start at 4pmCT.

Whether you attend the Treats on the Town or elect to participate in the traditional door to door trick or treating please be careful and Happy Halloween from the Columbia Police Department

- Josh Brockman
