The streets of Regina will be full of ghosts, goblins and other creatures looking for candy Wednesday night and Access Communications will once again have a presence on the streets to make sure everything goes smoothly.
Once again, Access will have their “Pumpkin Patrol” out from 6-9 as volunteers and community partners will be in company vehicles equipped with a flashing orange light and a direct link to local enforcement if the need arises.
Access spokesperson Tracey Mucha says the night is generally not problematic for the patrol, and it is a sign of safety for those on the street.
“We will be visible which is something that gives many parents a sense of relief and I think kids too.” Mucha said. “We have been doing this for over 20 years now and it has become somewhat of a tradition as it makes the night a little easier for all involved as they can come to us if they have a problem.”
Mucha says 20 or so vehicles will be on the streets all over the city watching for any problems that may come up.
The Pumpkin Patrol will also be working in other communities Access serves like Estevan, Weyburn, Humboldt and Yorkton.
