Attorney General Jeff Landry Encourages Louisiana Families to Put Safety First This Halloween

BATON ROUGE, LA – Halloween may look different this year but monsters, goblins, and super-heroes will still be descending on homes across Louisiana. In an effort to keep Halloween a fun-filled night of tricks and treats, Attorney General Jeff Landry encourages our State’s families to be vigilant.

“It is imperative that families be extra vigilant and take the appropriate precautions to make certain Louisiana’s children remain out of harm’s way,” said General Landry. “I encourage parents and guardians to review the following safety tips and re-iterate them to their children.”

  • Follow local guidelines or ordinances.
  • Put phones down and keep heads up while walking.
  • Ensure that all costumes and wigs are flame resistant.
  • Never trick-or-treat alone; walk in groups or with a trusted adult.
  • Always cross the street at corners and obey all traffic signals and crosswalks.
  • Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.
  • Carry a flashlight and fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags.
  • If driving, eliminate any distractions and be aware of trick-or-treaters.
