LIVE: Fargo Police Talk About Halloween Safety

Fargo police are joining the call to urge parents to check the candy their children bring home.

Public Information Officer Jessica Schindeldecker sat down live in-studio with the Morning Show’s Emily Welker to talk about what to be on the lookout for in your kids’ candy, why traffic and kids can be an even more dangerous combination, and the online tools you can use to keep your children away from sex offenders’ doors for trick or treating Thursday night.

Investigators say Halloween candy found in a child’s bag tested positive for heroin.

The candy was discovered after a trunk or treat event at a New Jersey family center promoted as a safe environment for children who want to go out to trick or treat.

While they are calling the case an isolated one in Middle Township, New Jersey, the opiate addiction problem is widespread across the nation this morning — including here in the Red River Valley.
