Barrett Asks For Help
Captain Thomas Barrett, the commanding officer of the 100 Precinct in Rockaway Park is asking the help of the community in keeping down incidents of Halloween vandalism this year.
"We need the help of storeowners this year to restrict the sale of eggs and shaving cream," Barrett said. "We are putting on extra cars for the evening and we will be tougher this year with vandals who are trying to ruin this happy event for everybody else."
Barrett added that he wants all of the children and teens to enjoy the "trick or treat" happening, but that hurting others is not part of the tradition.
"This holiday is for the kids," the captain said.
