The Carbondale Police Department is looking for volunteers this Halloween.
From 5 to 8 p.m., on Tuesday, Oct. 31, the police department will be sponsoring a Halloween safety patrol called “Pumpkin Patrol”. The police department has sponsored the Pumpkin Patrol since 1992.
Volunteers wearing orange safety vests and driving vehicles bearing the “Pumpkin Patrol” logo will be patrolling areas of our community where kids participate in “trick or treat”. The volunteers will be on “Pumpkin Patrol” to identify any potential hazards to children and provide a place where children can turn if they feel threatened.
If you are interested in being on the “Pumpkin Patrol” contact Officer Randy Mathis at 618-457-3200, extension 402.
