Cards to deter Staffordshire trick or treaters
People in Staffordshire who do not want "trick or treaters" knocking on their doors are being encouraged to pick up special cards warning people away.
The glow-in-the-dark cards have been made available for Halloween under a campaign involving various groups, including several councils and police.
The cards, saying "No trick or treat - thank you", were put at various public buildings, including libraries.
Posters about the Be Aware of Who You Scare scheme have also been put up.
