PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Palm Bay Police Department VCOPs will deploy their annual Halloween Night Pumpkin Patrol on Thursday beginning at 5 p.m. and continuing through 9 p.m.
Several marked “Citizen Patrol” vehicles decorated with pumpkin lights will patrol each sector of the city delivering candy to children participating.
Two uniformed volunteers will be in each marked vehicle throughout the duration of the patrol. Parents are encouraged to participate with their children and to reinforce common sense safety practices during Halloween activities.
Patrol officers will also be conducting proactive enforcement including compliance checks of registered sex offenders in the area.
“We urge parents to check all the items children receive during the night,” said Chief Doug Muldoon. “We want everyone to have a fun filled enjoyable evening.”
