With Halloween rapidly approaching, the Jacksonville Police Department is reminding city residents of the permitted trick or treating hours.

On Friday and Saturday trick or treating activities will be allowed from 6-9 p.m. Trick or treating is only acceptable for children who have yet to reach their 13th birthday and should be practiced no more than five block from the child’s home.

Parents are urged to accompany their children during trick or treating and closely inspect and discard any suspect treats.

Pedestrians should be cautious when crossing streets Friday and Saturday night.
