MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -

Mount Pleasant police officers dressed up as superheroes and gave treats out and safety tips to children at Belle Hall Elementary School on Thursday.

"Halloween is a great time to let the inner hero out, but it is also a time for caution and common sense," said PFC. Dustin Eugley. "The new Trunk-or-Treat program is a way for children to have fun while learning some important Halloween safety tips."

Team 4 was at Belle Hall Elementary School on Halloween Day with decorated police cruisers and trunks filled with candy. A police officer gave important safety tips to the children who later stopped by each of the decorated police cruisers manned by a superhero for a candy giveaway.

"Our new Trunk-or-Treat program is our way of making sure our youngest community members remain safe," said Police Chief Carl Ritchie. "While most residents look at the bigger dangers of trick or treating, they forget it is the everyday traffic rules that tend to be forgotten on Halloween. Our department will be out in force to patrol our neighborhoods and keep our children safe."
