Bexley police launch crackdown on anti-social behaviour this Halloween
TRICK or treaters across Bexley are being warned to “think carefully” about which doors they knock on.
Bexley Police has this morning announced its seasonal crackdown on anti-social behaviour has begun, with Halloween less than a week away and bonfire night just around the corner.
Officers will be patrolling key locations such as town centres, bus stops and railway stations in a bid to disrupt potential anti-social behaviour.
Bexley Police Chief Inspector Ian Broadbridge said: "If trick or treating, be aware of the impact of your actions on others - it may cause unnecessary worry to some of the more vulnerable members of our communities.
“Please think carefully about which doors you knock on this Halloween and please respect the wishes of any household displaying a 'No Trick or Treat' poster.”
He added: “We are here to help make sure that everyone can enjoy the festivities and stay safe across Bexley.
“During this busy period, ensure you stay safe by staying with others and try to attend well organised events.
“When you are out, keep your valuables and high-value mobile phones out of sight, or leave them at home.”
Worried residents should call their local Safer Neighbourhoods Team or in an emergency, 999.
