Free posters to discourage trick or treaters
Derbyshire police are handing out free posters to discourage unwanted trick or treaters from calling on residents.
Posters can be put up in front room windows or doors by people who do not wish to be visited.
Officers are also giving a different poster to shopkeepers that tells customers that eggs and flour will not be sold to anyone under the age of 16.
The posters are part of a plan to target the annual trend of increased calls about anti-social behaviour around Halloween and bonfire night.
Neighbourhoods will be patrolled to reassure residents, and officers will use powers to disperse large groups of youngsters if they are found to be causing a nuisance.
For further information, or to get hold of the Halloween posters contact your local Safer Neighbourhood policing team on 101.
