Operation Cauldron - get your free "No trick or treaters" poster
Main article content
Over the next few weeks we'll see more spooky decorations and parties in our communities in celebration of Halloween and Bonfire night - and we hope you'll be having fun.
We want to help everyone to celebrate safely, while being mindful of those who may wish to enjoy a quieter few weeks, which is why we're offering a free "No trick or treaters" poster which can be downloaded and popped in your window to let people know if you'd rather they didn't knock on your door.
We're also encouraging parents and guardians to explain what that means to children so that elderly members of the community or vulnerable people are not frightened by unwanted callers.
People unable to download and print posters can collect one from the front desk of their local police station.
Retailers are also being encouraged not to sell eggs and flour to young people, as well as being reminded of the law surrounding the regulation and sale of fireworks. Two posters on these themes can be downloaded and printed to display in stores.
The posters are being offered as part of as part of Operation Cauldron, our annual operation run in conjunction with Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service (LFRS), to help prevent problems, provide reassurance, and promote safety around Halloween and Bonfire Night.
As well as the poster, there will be police patrols in local communities and officers are visiting vulnerable residents to help everyone enjoy themselves.
