South Wales Police is once again launching its Halloween Campaign with a ‘Be A Nice Monster’ poster and stickers and on social media with #spooksafe, which is promoting people to behave safely and responsibly during the trick-or-treating festivities.

Since the beginning of October, specially trained officers have been giving talks to school pupils about the adverse impact that anti-social behaviour can have on others – however harmless it may seem at the time.

Neighbourhood Policing Officers have also been delivering posters to schools, residents and shops so they can display them in their window to encourage good behaviour.

Primary school children across south Wales have also been asked to design their very own monster as part of the #SpookSafe.

The winner and three friends will receive a voucher for a free round of mini golf, courtesy of Treetop Adventure Golf in Cardiff.

 

Assistant Chief Constable of South Wales Police, Richard Lewis said: “For many, Halloween is a time for celebration and we want everyone to have the most enjoyable Halloween as possible.

“With celebrations come the risk of situations escalating and behaviour getting out of hand. It is vital that the public show consideration for their community when celebrating Halloween.

“South Wales Police will be deploying additional police officers and Community Support Officers to enhance visibility over this period, both to provide reassurance to the community but also to deter and when necessary intervene to prevent inappropriate or anti-social behaviour.”

Alun Michael, Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales Police said: “We hope everyone has a fantastic Halloween, it’s a great time for people to get together and have fun but remember it’s important to think about how actions can impact on others. As highlighted in the Police and Crime Reduction Plan reducing anti-social behaviour is a common theme.

“Working with South Wales Police and other partner agencies we have created better services for victims, with the aim of maintaining our strong, safe and healthy communities within Wales.

“During this time of year, the pressure on emergency services is high, it’s important that people consider how their behaviour can impact demand placed on essential frontline services, which unfortunately can result in putting those vulnerable and in need at risk.”

Police forces will take action against anyone committing acts of anti-social behaviour. Remember if you are experiencing anti-social behaviour, call 101. If it is an emergency, call 999.
