Stay Safe this Halloween

We know that whilst many people enjoy taking part in the festivities surrounding Halloween, there will also be members of the public who would prefer not to be disturbed.

Trick or treat

If you would prefer not to have trick or treaters call at your door this year, then please download and display our 'no callers please' sign.

Sign - English

Sign - Welsh

If you are planning to go out trick or treating this year, then please don’t call at houses where you see one of the signs on display. Here are some other tips:

  • Only to go to houses where you or your friends know the people and know you are welcome
  • Always go with an adult
  • Don’t talk to strangers
  • Stay safe and keep to areas that you know and are well lit. Do not take short cuts through gardens, alleyways or parks.


No flour or eggs

You may also see some of the following posters up in shops across the Gwent Police area – if so, it means that they won’t be selling flour or eggs to anyone apparently under the age of 18.

If you feel unsafe

  • Don’t open the door to strangers. Use a spy hole, door chain or window that overlooks your front door to check who is there. If you aren’t expecting anyone, then don’t open the door.
  • If you are a Neighbourhood Watch member, let your co-ordinator know that you will be on your own at Halloween. If you are not a member, let a relative or neighbour know.
  • To report incidents of anti-social behaviour, please phone us on 101. In an emergency, dial 999.
