Come meet your police department, and trick or treat with us, too!

The Kansas City Missouri Police Department has a couple of safe, fun ways for you and your family to celebrate Halloween this weekend.

The first is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 30, at Central High School, 3221 Indiana Ave. This fun, family affair will give you the opportunity to meet KCPD's mounted patrol and canine officers, check out the helicopter, learn about the CSI Unit, eat free lunch, and more. Also, children are encouraged to come in their Halloween costumes and trick or treat! Candy will be available at the different stations.

Speaking of trick-or-treating, KCPD's North and Shoal Creek patrol divisions are joining Northland Neighborhoods Inc. to present the Spooktacular Halloween Safe Trick-or-Treat event and haunted house from 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 31, at Metro North Mall (400 NW Barry Road - the southwest entrance by JC Penney). The is the sixth year we've done this event, and it's always a big hit. There will be a haunted house, haunted forest, LOTS of candy, popcorn, games, and a picture-taking area. Go to Northland Neighborhood Inc.'s web site for more information. Here are some pictures from last year's Safe Trick-or-Treat.
