Norfolk police received fewer phone calls related to Halloween this year than in the last three years.
There were 70 Halloween-related calls received by Norfolk Constabulary on Wednesday, compared to 82 calls received last year, the same number as 2010, and 98 calls in 2009.
Chief Superintendent Nick Dean said: “The evening passed without major incident and I would like to thank the county’s trick or treaters for showing respect to those who wished not to take part in the celebrations.
“We have worked with residents, partner agencies and local businesses to support vulnerable people over Halloween and passing on advice on enjoying the festivities safely.
“I’d remind residents that Safer Neighbourhood Teams will again be out in their local communities for bonfire and firework celebrations over the coming week to ensure that this continues.”
