Halloween just as scary as any other year for RCMP in Prince George

Though October 31, 2023 saw a small increase in calls for service in Prince George over the 2022 total, it was still lower than the five-year average.

Police officers responded to 124 calls for service this year, which was a rise from 113 calls in 2022, but much lower than the 154 calls received in 2021. The average calls for service on Halloween is 140.

“The ghosts and ghouls roaming about on Halloween were not much scarier than they have been any other year,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP. “Being a mid-week event this year, it likely had people returning home a littler earlier and partying more responsibly than when Halloween is on a weekend.”

The bulk of the calls to RCMP were reports of suspicious events people were witnessing (nine) and reports of mischief (five).

Prince George RCMP hopes everyone had a fun and safe Halloween and looks forward to the festivities in 2024.
