Dorset Police to remain vigilant against Halloween anti-social behaviour
Police are encouraging Dorset residents to enjoy Halloween - but will be cracking down on any anti-social behaviour.
Police will put on more patrols this evening to ensure the safety of the public, while some shops will display posters informing customers they will not be selling eggs, flour or fireworks to those under 18.
Superintendent Dave Thorp said: "We appreciate that people want to go our and enjoy the Halloween festivities and go trick or treating, but it is important to respect the views of others who do not want to participate.
"If homes are displaying no trick or treating signs, then politely move on.

"We will have extra patrols out and will take action against anyone found to be committing crime or anti-social behaviour.
"Despite incidents of anti-social behaviour reducing in Dorset, we will not get complacent."
Safer Neighbourhood Teams across Dorset have been handing out Halloween posters, encouraging the public to have fun on Halloween but to have respect for others.
A notice has also been produced for residents to display during Halloween, asking trick or treaters not to call at that property.
