— The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office has designated 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 31, as official times for trick-or-treating in the county. Door-to-door candy collection should be completed within those hours, the sheriff's office said.

The sheriff's office offered these other safety guidelines:

  • Motorists should watch for children darting out from between parked cars, crossing streets and walking on roadways.
  • Parents should accompany trick-or-treaters.
  • Children should not eat any treat until a parent inspects it.
  • Children should have their name, address and phone number on their costumes in case they become lost.
  • Children should not enter homes without adult supervision.
