It was all smiles with the trick-or-treaters at the Thomas Lindsey Center in Utica as they stopped in to see the Utica Police.
The children say they loved having a chance to see their real life heroes in person.
"They're nice and protect the world. They arrest bad people," said Trick-or-Treater, Jaymes Moore.
The Thomas Lindsey Center wasn't your typical stop this Halloween night.
Trick-or-Treaters around the neighborhood filled into the center to get candy from the Utica Police Department.
For one trick-or-treater, she was able to enjoy getting candy, along with feeling safe.
"It is so fun, We come to the officers, we get to get candy and stuff, and we get candy and the officers can protect us," said Jada Jackson.
But, the trick-or-treaters aren't the only ones who get to have all the fun.
"A lot of children coming in in their costumers trick-or-treating with their families. It's been a very good interaction handing out the candy, seeing the smiles and all the costumes. They're very pleased that we're here handing out candy," said Sgt. Michael Murphy.
Octavia Drayton stopped by to see the policemen for another reason as well.
"I wanted to see how their outfits looked," she said.
Octavia also says that the policemen she saw tonight are always looking out to protect her.
"If we need help they will come and help us," said Octavia.
And for Jaymes Moore, he had one final shout out to all the policemen who make him feel safe.
"Happy Halloween!!," said Jaymes.
