WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — The West Des Moines Police Department wants you to stay safe this Halloween so their officers hit the streets to make a public service announcement.

There five pieces of advice for trick-or-treaters are:

  1.  Look both ways when crossing the street
  2. Watch out for strangers
  3. Be courteous
  4. Pranks may be vandalism
  5. Check your candy carefully

But why just tell people when you can show them?  As you can tell, they had a lot of fun doing so.
