A Few Watchful Steps For Safe Halloween

Traffic Information:

The La Mesa Police Department received $10,000 in grant funding to be used for enforcement of the Driving Under the Influence laws last week. We a continuing our long standing partnership with the rest of the San Diego County law enforcement agencies in working together through the “AVIOD the DUI” campaign, which is funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety. The La Mesa Police Department will begin its grant operations next week by putting out extra officers on Halloween, Wednesday October 31, 2012 looking for drivers that may be under the influence.

Crime Prevention/Emergency Preparedness:
Following a few safety tips this Halloween will ensure you and your family have a fun, safe night. Welcome trick-or-treaters at home by turning on your exterior lights. Work together as a neighborhood to clear yards and the street of tripping hazards and obstructions that hide pedestrians from the view of drivers like trash bins and unnecessary street parking. Don’t leave windows or doors open when you are not in the room. Busy streets and excitement is also an opportunity for a criminal to move around undetected. Secure your home as if you were leaving for the evening. Only open the front door for kids that are obviously trick-or-treaters. If you see something suspicious while trick-or-treating, call La Mesa Police on the 24 hour non-emergency line (619) 667-1400. For emergencies, dial 9-1-1.
