On Thursday, Oct.19, the Portsmouth City Police Department held their Second Annual Trick-or-Trunk event at Tracy Park.

Police officers circled up around the park and dispersed candy from the trunk of their police cruisers to over one hundred children in costume. A total of 18 officers and cruisers made the event special, dressed in uniform with red and blue lights flashing. Officer Dawes of the Portsmouth City Police said the annual event was a chance to give back.

“It’s an opportunity for all of the officers to give back to the community, and really humanize the badge for some people. Kids and parents alike,” said Dawes.

Parents and kids from all over Scioto County made their way to Tracy Park between 6 and 7:30 p.m. decked out in creative and wacky costumes, Batman, Princesses, and Minions being some of the most popular outfit choices.

The Trick-or-Trunk event provided kids and parents with a fun and safe, pre-Halloween night activity and allowed kids the chance to meet some of the communities biggest real life superheroes.
