DEWITT — As Halloween rapidly approaches, DeWitt begins its preparations. Given its reputation as a more raucous holiday and its placement on a Saturday, how does this affect things around town? “What’s different about Halloween, is really just the amount of people on the street. By trick-or-treating hours [6 p.m. to 8 p.m.] it’s getting dark and nasty out, so we put an extra officer out just because of all the extra traffic,” Dewitt Chief of Police Bruce Ferguson said. The DeWitt Police Department does not send out all of its employed officers on Halloween; two have been found to be ample.
