Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP are prepared for tricks and treats this weekend.

With Halloween falling on Monday, police expect partiers to have fun over the weekend.

“We know most of the parties will be on the weekend, we’re well aware of that,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “It could be an interesting weekend.”

The local detachment will have a full roster of members on patrol, and will receive help from auxiliary members and Citizens On Patrol to ensure everyone enjoys a safe Halloween weekend.

On the big night, police remind motorists to watch out for trick-or-treaters, and that those enjoying the night should wear light or reflective clothing, and carry a flashlight in order to be seen.
