The City of Wheat Ridge Police Department and Arvada Fire started Halloween preparations earlier than most this season. Last month the department’s Officer John Bowman took students from Stevens Elementary costume shopping, in preparation for filming a public safety video. The students picked out costumes at Costume City, off of Wadsworth, then gathered in the evening near Arvada Fire Station 2 for the filming. The video covers safety concerns such as costume choice — ability to see well, no tripping on long capes, reflective/bright colors — using battery operated candles, traveling in groups, using crosswalks, and more. The Halloween safety video centers on the theme “Be Smart, Be Seen and Be Safe.” The

Wheat Ridge Police Department volunteers, Explorers group and department chaplains all assisted in the video’s creation. The video is available on the Wheat Ridge Channel 8 YouTube channel, with links on its Facebook and Twitter pages. A Spanish version will air on Telemundo, thanks to translation provided by Officer Alan Hernandez. The video can be found here.
