The San Diego Police Officers Association reminded trick-or-treaters not to venture out alone tonight and to remain visible.

The organization issued a series of tips for a safe Halloween:

-- parents should accompany young children and inspect their loot when they return home;

-- bring a flashlight or glow stick, and attach reflective tape to costumes and candy bags to be visible to drivers;

-- make sure children can see through their masks;

-- simulated knives and guns shouldn't look too realistic;

-- keep costumes away from open flames, especially pumpkins with candles; and

-- drive very carefully.

The POA also said people staying home to pass out candy should welcome trick-or-treaters with their exterior lights on.
