Pumpkin Patrol

Beggars Night – Pumpkin Patrol

The Police Division coordinates Pumpkin Patrol each year, sending out marked City vehicles with assistance from the Citizen Police Academy Alumni Group to patrol neighborhoods and assist children if they become lost or scared while trick-or-treating. The trucks have two-way radios to contact emergency personnel.

Beggars Night is a community-wide activity, with the recommended event date established by the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) on behalf of Central Ohio communities. It is not organized by the City of Upper Arlington.

Parents are advised to use discretion when deciding if it is appropriate for their children to be out trick-or-treating based on inclement weather conditions.
