Precincts to display Halloween pumpkins

Children who live in Yesler Terrace had an opportunity yesterday to carve pumpkins with police officers at the Yesler Community Center.  The ghoulish gourds will be displayed at the Seattle Police East Precinct beginning tonight.  Participating kids received a certificate and an early advance on Halloween candy.  Best of all, their handiwork will be featured for all to see and admire. 

All police precincts will have similar displays through Halloween, so be sure to check them out!

Also, on Halloween night, costumed kids are encouraged to stop by their neighborhood precinct and “trick or treat” for candy between the hours of 5 p.m. and 8: 30 p.m.  Have a fun and safe Halloween!
