In an effort to give children a safer alternative than going door-to-door for Halloween this year as the pandemic continues posing a threat, the Pasadena Police Department is inviting kids to pick up their crayons, markers or paints to join in “reverse trick-or-treating” this week.

Beginning Monday and continuing through Halloween, officers will be on the lookout for the colored-in pages posted on the front doors and windows of homes, officials said. They will drop off treat bags containing candy.

“Be creative and color as you wish,” city officials said in a written statement.

The coloring pages can be downloaded at, or picked up at city libraries and community centers.
