The Brainerd Police Department is located at 225 East River Road in Brainerd. Children will get a chance to meet McGruff the Crime Dog and receive a trick or treat bag with a glow-in-the-dark necklace, safety information and candy. There will be a drawing for two stuffed McGruff toys. The winner's names will be posted on the police department's Facebook page after the event.

Trick-or-treaters will be able to access the event at the police department garage located on west side of the police department near Front Street. Parking is available on Front Street, in the parking lot north of the police department. All children are welcome. The event is intended to give area children the opportunity to trick-or-treat in a safe and friendly environment.

The Brainerd Fire Department will be greeting trick-or-treaters also at this same time, located just across the street from the police department. The Crow Wing County Sheriff's Department will also be hosting a Halloween event at the same time just down the street at 202 Laurel.

First Impressions Printing, Lakes Area Law Enforcement Association, Brainerd Patrolman's Association, National Child Safety Council, Brainerd Fire Department, Brainerd Fire Department Relief Association and Crow Wing County Sheriff's Department all helped sponsor the event.
