Residents Treated to Extra Patrols on Halloween Night

Officers greet trick-or-treaters

October 31, 2012 was a great night for trick-or-treaters!  Kids were all dressed up in their best Halloween costumes as moms and dads walked children from door to door looking for their favorite candies and chocolate treats.  The Southlake Police Department was also out in force patrolling the streets to help keep trick-or-treaters safe. “It was a great opportunity for our officers and our command staff to meet and greet folks in neighborhoods all across the City,” said Police Chief Stephen Mylett.

Many of the trick-or-treaters waved as officers left each neighborhood and parents and kids alike thought it was pretty special that Southlake Police Officers were so visible especially with so many kids out and about. As one parent said, “This is great and we really appreciate all that you do to help keep our City safe, especially on a busy night like this.” (*See more photos on
