In a couple of weeks, children will travel throughout the county to collect some sweet treats.
The Prince William County Police Department (PWCPD) has a few tips that can help keep them safe this Halloween.
Trick-or-treaters are advised to walk in groups or with an adult they trust, according to a release.
They should also wear light-colored clothing and place reflective tape on their costumes.
Parents are encouraged to check candy in a well-lit area at home, and kids shouldn’t enter unfamiliar houses or cars.
Prince William County has created a video on Halloween safety tips.
Community members can contact the police department by calling 911, or calling the non-emergency number, 703-792-6500.
