Homer Plessy Community School was one of four locations where officers delivered Halloween candy to today (Oct. 31). 

Officers handed out more than 600 trick-or treat bags filled with candy to New Orleans area students at four locations including, KIPP Leadership Primary, Edward Hynes Charter School, Homer Plessy Community School, and the Youth Empowerment Project.

More than 20 local Walgreens stores donated the candy which was packed in reflective trick-or-treat bags donated by the New Orleans Police & Justice Foundation. Officers also gave the students some Halloween safety tips as well as some general ways to stay safe every day.
