Area first responders are getting in the Halloween spirit for trick-or-treaters this year.

The Jacksonville Police Department is offering a safe trick-or-treat again this year.

Kids can go to the Jacksonville Police Substation tonight at 300 E. Walnut for safe treats from the JPD. Jacksonville Chief of Police Adam Mefford said the substation is only handing out candy tonight.

Last year was our first time at our Walnut Court substation location, we habded out candy to the kids on Wednesday night, the 30th. We did not do Thursday last year and we are going to do the same thing this year. From 6:00 to 7:30 pm we will be there to hand out candy.”

Again the substation will be holding safe trick or treat tonight only from 6:00 to 7:30 pm at 300 E. Walnut.

The Murrayvillle Fire Protection District will be passing out candy from 5 to 8 pm tomorrow only. Trick-or-treaters in Murrayville are invited to the fire house and are also advised to keep their eyes out for the brush truck riding around the village.

And if you see a Murrayville Woodson police car out and about, don’t be shy, come up to the car, as they will have candy to pass out as well. Woodson village trick or treating will be tomorrow only, from 5 to 8 pm.
