Halloween Night is an exciting time for the children of Bridgewater. It can also be a night of troublemaking. In October 2012, Cst. Jennifer Mason launched the town’s first Pumpkin Patrol; a program aimed at preventing vandalism and bullying on Halloween Night, more importantly, giving parents and children a sense of safety. Thirty students from Bridgewater High School and Park View Education Centre volunteered to hit the streets to act as extra eyes and ears for parents and the police and to protect young trick-or-treaters. Cst. Mason divided the town into zones and assigned the students to work in groups to patrol specific areas. Wearing easily recognizable bright orange t-shirts, the Pumpkin Patrol was a visible presence that contributed to the overall safety of Halloween night. This event was sponsored by Mark Seamone of Exit Reality.
