Message from Chief Waugh

Although Bern Township is not endorsing a trick-or-treat night this year, the Bern Township Police Department would like to remind motorists that Halloween is Saturday, October 31.

Drivers should be alert for children and pedestrian traffic who may be out after dark.

Parents should ensure that any children who are out carry flashlights or reflective devices and practice good pedestrian safety techniques.
