Halloween Safety Event

Each year the Brainerd Police Department teams up with local businesses and associations to make Halloween activities safer for area children.

Our annual Halloween Safety Event is a big success! Over 900 children stop by the Police Department during the annual event and receive a glow necklace, a trick-or-treat bag, candy, and stickers from our volunteers. The children also have an opportunity to meet McGruff the Crime Dog.

We would like to extend our thanks to the volunteers and sponsors, as this event would not be possible without them.


The annual Halloween Safety Event has been sponsored by:
  • Brainerd Police Department
  • Brainerd Fire Department
  • First Impression Printing
  • Lakes Area Law Enforcement Association
  • National Child Safety Council
  • Brainerd Police Department Patrolman Association
