Trick-or-Treat Curfew? Wagoner Takes Steps to Keep Halloween Safe

Posted: Updated:
Wagoner police officers and county deputies are preparing for Halloween night patrols. Part of keeping everyone safe? Enforcing the city's trick-or-treating curfew.

Wagoner's city council approves the date and time to allow trick-or-treating each year. Wagoner Chief of Police Bob Haley said children are allowed to trick-or-treat this year from 6 to 9 p.m. He said other municipalities and neighborhoods around the area have similar curfews.

"These times, you know, a lot of people, other than Halloween time, are not normally expecting or wanting people knocking on their doors after dark," Haley said.

Many headstart and daycare programs spent early Thursday trick-or-treating at downtown businesses. Tanzy Taylor led a group of kids.

"I think it's an excellent rule. I really do. The later it gets in the evening, the more opportunities the children have to get in trouble," Taylor said.

Haley said he expects most people will respect the curfew. However, he said officers will remind any people trick-or-treating after 9 p.m. of the rule.

In addition to the trick-or-treating curfew, Wagoner officials plan to keep the area safe with additional patrols.

Haley said there will likely be an additional four or five officers on-duty. He said they will make sure children are remaining alert and people are driving safely.

The Wagoner County Sheriff's Office will likely have an additional eight to 10 officers on duty.

Tulsa does not have a trick-or-treating curfew. However, Tulsa Police Officer Leland Ashley suggests skipping any homes that have turned the porch lights off.
