Thank you note to police as Mischief Night passes quietly

by Henry James (November 2021)

POLICE in Ormskirk had a welcome surprise when they returned to their car on Mischief Night (Saturday, October 30) – a resident left a thank you note on the vehicle.

The officers were on patrol as part of their operations over the Halloween weekend when they found the message written on a sticky note.

It stated the house number where they live and said ‘I can’t tell you how grateful I am for your presence.’

Officers posted a photograph stating it was “a lovely note of thanks from one of our residents. Thankfully the majority of people are enjoying the Halloween weekend responsibly.”

The post added: “We have just had to speak to a small group in Ormskirk town centre about their behaviour but they are now on their way home as I think it was past their bed time.”

In an earlier post they wrote: “Do you know where your child is tonight?

“We’d like to appeal to parents – do you know where your children are? With the message to stay safe and enjoy Halloween responsibly.

“The consequences of anti social behaviour and criminality can have a lasting impact on a young person’s life and on those affected by their actions. It seems that most people got the message.”
