NEW MILFORD - Halloween safety is on the minds of parents in north Jersey as reports of attempted child lurings continue to pour in to police.
Officials in New Milford have imposed a curfew of 8:00 p.m. on both Halloween and mischief night for anyone under 18.
Other towns are taking similar steps to ensure child safety. Parents in Wyckoff are organizing a "trunk or treat" where trick-or-treaters go from car to car in a parking lot under parental supervision instead of going door to door.
Police have released four sketches in connection with more than a dozen attempted child luring incidents in north Jersey in recent weeks, targeting kindergarteners to high school students.
The most recent attempted luring happened in Bergenfield Monday evening around 6. Police say a man in a pick-up truck approached a 12-year-old boy, but the boy ran away.
