SURREY - Surrey Mounties are preparing for double the trouble this Halloween night as they deploy roughly twice the regular number of officers they typically have on shift.
"We'll have over 100 cops on the road," Cpl. Bert Paquet said. "Probably slightly over double the numbers we usually have."
Paquet said the extra road presence is intended to deter "radical" behaviour, though most complaints are of a minor nature.
"A lot of it is just nuisance, fireworks," he said. "Definitely we'll see a rise in calls, but we're ready to face that."
Delta Police are also preparing for a busy night.
"We'll have extra officers on as well," said Acting Sgt. Sarah Swallow, spokeswoman for the force.
"It'll definitely be a lot larger presence."
