Programs and Events
The Jefferson Police Department has a new radar trailer. The trailer was made possible through donations from LD Foods, Aumann's Towing, Jefferson Glass, and Slew Foot Signs. The trailer is set up in different locations in the city nearly everyday to remind drivers how fast they are going and what the speed limits are. The goals of using the radar trailer is to slow drivers down to create a safer environment for the citizens and guests of the city. If you have a street in the city where you would like to see the radar trailer placed just call us at (920)674-7707. We will try and satisfy your request in a timely manner.

Trick or Treat with a responsible adult or teen.
Trick or Treat in your own neighborhood, on well-lighted streets.
Trick or Treat safely by never entering a stranger's house even if invited and never take a ride from a stranger.
Trick or Treat using sidewalks when possible. Walk never run across yards and look both ways before crossing streets.
Keep costumes simple.
Costumes should be flame retardant (fire proof).
Use reflector patches or stripes. Costumes made of light-colored material are more easily seen at night.
Use non-toxic make-up instead of masks for better visibility.
Wear comfortable shoes. Avoid big floppy shoes.
Carry-along props should be made of styrofoam or cardboard with no sharp points.
Hats, wigs, or beards should be secure and out of eyes.
Trick-or-Treat bags should have handles to keep arms free.
Bags should be easy to carry and should not drag on the ground.
Never eat treats from Trick-or-Treating until they are examined by a parent.
Check wrappers of pre-packaged treats for signs of tampering and throw away anything unwrapped.
If harmful items are found, notify your local law enforcement department.
The Jefferson Police Department would like to see the children of our community have a safe and fun filled Halloween.
