In 1975, King County Police officers made presentations on Halloween safety at 38 elementary schools, reaching approximately 20,000 students.

Volunteers from Girl Scout Troop #421, a retirement home, and a senior citizens’ club helped prepare by stapling candy to 20,000 flyers. The candy had been donated by several local manufacturers and distributors.

The children were impressed!

And, the officers were congratulated by the Department of Public Safety for promoting safety and goodwill among “the youngsters.”

 Happy Halloween!
