With Mischief Night, Halloween and bonfire nighte upon us, we would like to take this opportunity to reassure people that we are committed to keeping our communities safe. It isn't about trying to ruin the fun for young people, but allowing everyone to be able to safely enjoy the events.
We have been working closely with partners over the last few weeks, including West Lancashire Borough Council, Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service and North West Ambulance, and it is vitally important that individuals within the community have the confidence to come forward and help us to keep them safe by reporting any concerns or information to us on Lancashire.police.uk/reportonline, calling 101 or CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111.
We would ask all parents, do you know where your children are? With the message, stay in, stay safe, stay out of trouble. We want to ensure that public order is kept to a minimum and everyone has a safe and happy Halloween.
