Trick or treat

Stop by the Brown County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday, Oct. 29 for trick-or-treating. Treat bags will be handed out outside this year.

The Brown County Sheriff’s Office will be greeting trick-or-treaters from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29.

Sheriff John Merchant said staff will hand out Trick or Treat bags in front of the Sheriffs office instead of in the lobby. Trick or treat bags will contain safety information, pencils, stickers, candy and orange glow sticks for safety.

“This is an event that the staff look forward to each year, and also provides us the opportunity to interact with parents and children,” Sheriff Merchant said. “We would also like to encourage all kids to have a safe and happy Halloween and follow some of these basic safety rules.”
