SAFETY TIPS FOR HALLOWEEN
Halloween is approaching, and we expect large groups of children to be out and about that evening, enjoying the festivities. Our primary concern on Halloween, and any other time, is the safety of children. With that in mind, we would like to offer the following safety tips. Please review these with your children before they begin their trick-or-treat adventure.Fake swords, knives, guns, and other costume accessories can potentially cause injury. Make sure they aren't too long for the costume and review with your child that they are part of the costume and not a weapon. Make sure they are made out of cardboard or flexible materials.
For more Halloween safety tips, please visit https://www.safekids.org/halloween.
With a little preparation, communication and diligence, Halloween can be a safe and enjoyable evening. Of course, we will be on patrol and available to you and your children should you need us. As always, dial 911 in case of an emergency.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Having the jail roster online will allow the public to view booking details for individuals in the detention center as well as those released within the last 48 hours.
Our Website – www.BroadwaterCountySheriff.org – provides details on all aspects of the Sheriff’s Office. One of our goals when developing the new Website was to provide a centralized location for current information such as press releases and where sex offenders are living in the county.
The Website was developed by MostWantedGovernmentWebsites.com by Brooks-Jeffrey Marketing, Inc. of Mountain Home, Arkansas. Brooks-Jeffrey specializes in the production of law enforcement and government Website solutions.
