Happy Halloween Stanford! ๐Ÿ‘ป๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฆ‡

Trick-or-treating is from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m. tonight. We also have Pizza and Treats at the Township Building from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

In typical Illinois fashion we went from fall to winter overnight. Don't forget to bundle your trick-or-treaters up! Even superman is susceptible to the cold. ๐Ÿฅถ

A few safety tips for tonights festivities:

๐ŸŽƒCarry glow sticks or flashlights, use reflective tape or stickers on costumes and bags, and wear light colors to help kids see and be seen by drivers.
๐Ÿ‘ปDrivers, slow down and be overly cautious and residential areas. Turn your headlights on early to make you more visible to trick-or-treaters.
๐ŸงŸโ€โ™‚๏ธRemind trick-or-treaters to cross the street at corners and crosswalks.
๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธMake sure costumes are the right size. Consider using nontoxic Halloween makeup instead of masks to ensure your trick-or-treaters vision isn't obscured.
๐Ÿฆ‡Instruct children to travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and stick with their groups.

We can't wait to see everyone! ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‘ป

Rain rain go away...๐ŸŒง

Did you know if the weather is bad enough that you need to turn your windshield wipers on you have to turn your headlights on as well?

The photo below shows you what you look like in the side mirror of a vehicle driving in dark, cloudy, & rainy conditions (just like today) without your headlights on. You can hardly tell there's a vehicle there!

To ensure you're visible to other drivers on the road, when you turn your windshield wipers on physically turn your headlights on. Try not to trust your vehicle "auto" setting. Not all vehicles are programmed to automatically turn its headlights on when the windshield wipers are turned on.

As most of you are aware, there has been an increased officer presence in Stanford the past 48 hours. Thanks to everyone in the community and their vigilance, Stanford PD was able to arrest the individual this morning without incident.

Weโ€™d also like to thank McLean County Sheriff's Office and Minier Police Department for their assistance as well. Teamwork truly makes the dream work!
