Dauphin RCMP will be ensuring the safety of residents in and around the city this Halloween with increased patrols.

You can expect to see a greater number of RCMP officers this Saturday, with a focus on distracted and impaired drivers.

Corporal Kalvin Kristjanson of the Dauphin RCMP says “with an increased number of young children out on the streets at Halloween, we want to pay special attention to traffic enforcement in an effort to keep those children safe.”

The Dauphin detachment are reminding drivers to be cautious when out on the roads on Halloween, and remind parents to ensure they’re taking steps to keep their kids safe while trick-or-treating.
