Cherokee County Sheriff's Office celebrates Halloween with kids

Updated:

It's all about safety on Halloween...and who knows that better than law enforcement?

Cherokee County Sheriff, David Groves knows all about that.

"We just want to make sure that our law enforcement officers are out there, and making sure everyone is having a safe time." Groves says.

But that doesn't mean they can't participate in the fun as well. TheCherokee County Sheriff's Office joined in the safe trick or treat walk in Galena Thursday afternoon, passing out candy and spending time with the superhero's, villains and princesses of Galena.

"We saw a lot of captain Americas, a lot of mario brothers, ninja turtles, power rangers, princesses and witches, everyone looked great and was having a great time." Groves says.

Whether its day or night, the goal still remains the same for law enforcement - keeping kids safe. 

Safe walks are just one of the ways law enforcement is involved with the holiday. City police in the county frequently pass out candy when trick or treating is done door to door at night, so the kids and adults can enjoy.

"It's just an opportunity for us to be involved in the community and be in a...not necessarily a law enforcement type setting, but have interactions with us, and if they need anything we're right there." Groves says.

Cherokee County Officials say if you ran into any problems or concern tonight, you can give them a call so the problem can be fixed.
