The annual Halloween Haunt at the Kids' Safety Village in Whitby delivered a load of spooky fun and ghostly activities. Cst. Astrid and her team of goblins and witches transformed the mini-village into a haunted place for trick or treating.
This year, the stations included:
-A walk through the haunted hallways of the school house
-A mad scientist laboratory
-A ghoulish bride and groom, and a candy-filled wedding reception
-A haunted grave yard
-A witches brew station
Kids came dressed in their costumes for the spooktacular night. And a little rain didn't dampen their spirits.
Officer Astrid feels this event benefits both police and the community, as children can interact with Auxiliary police officers and DRPS volunteers, and they can share Halloween safety tips, including bring flashlights and use reflective tape to make kids visible at night, and be sure to obey all traffic and pedestrian laws.

Also at the event, a donation from the General Motors Oshawa Assembly Plant was presented to Lenis Trotter, Chair of the KSV Board, and Officer Astrid. The employees made the donation to help promote safety and education.
