Plantation, Florida –
The City of Plantation’s police department has some recommendations and tips for a safe Halloween. Our main Broward County criminal defense law firm is located in Plantation and we thought we would pass some of their ideas along to our readers.
The focus here is obviously the children – their safety primarily, but also trying to limit any legal exposure – both criminal and civil. Our Plantation Criminal Defense Attorneys always see a spike in juvenile criminal cases on Halloween.
Halloween safety tips from the Plantation Police Department:
•Try to use sidewalks whenever possible.
•Walk facing traffic.
•Carry a flashlight to increase visibility.
•Have the children stay in your own neighborhood if possible.
•Don’t damage other people’s property. Just because it’s Halloween doesn’t mean the police will look the other way. The Plantation police department will still prosecute vandalism, theft and criminal mischief and any other juvenile criminal offense.
