Halloween Safehouse tonight; donations still being accepted

Ada —

Anyone wishing to make last-minute candy donations to Ada police for tonight’s annual Halloween Safehouse may do so by bringing candy — or monetary donations — to the Ada Police Department by 4 p.m. today. 

The event will take place at the Pontotoc County Agri-Plex from 6 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. and admission, as always, is free. 

Ada Assistant Police Chief Jeff Crosby said officers from the Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training are helping with this year’s event and, if enough candy is acquired, police will set up dozens of patrol cars around the Agri-Plex with emergency lights flashing. 

Officers will hand out candy to trick-or-treaters from the trunks of the patrol cars. Crosby said it should be quite the spectacle.
