Golden Valley Police Urge Residents To Celebrate Halloween Safely

With Halloween less than one week away, the Golden Valley Police Department (GVPD) reminds parents to trick-or-treat with caution and to inspect candy before giving it to children.

“The new ‘rainbow fentanyl’ may look like candy, and it can be extremely deadly if consumed,” said Golden Valley Police Chief Virgil Green. “While Golden Valley hasn’t had any reports of fentanyl incidents, given the alarming increase of fentanyl cases around the country, we just want parents to be aware of the unfortunate but potential risks around this time of year.”

Green also added that parents are encouraged to inspect candy packaging for tampering and to educate their kids on taking candy from other children.

“If you encounter fentanyl or other suspicious-looking items in your children’s Halloween candy, call 911 immediately,” said Green.

Celebrate Halloween Safely With Golden Valley Public Safety

The Golden Valley Police and Fire Departments are hosting a Trunk 'n' Treat event Sat, Oct 29, noon–3 pm, at the Golden Valley City Hall parking lot. Children and families are encouraged to dress up and join the GVPD and GVFD for an afternoon of fun.

Police and Fire vehicles will be decorated and filled with candy for trick-or-treaters, and the afternoon will feature a performance by the Teddy Bear Band.

The event is made possible through a donation from the Golden Valley Crime Prevention Fund.

For questions and more information, call 763-953-8079.
