    On any night that you expect to be very busy, try to stay loose and avoid getting tied up with petty crap.

    Always remember it is a night of mayhem and mischief, as Guantes stated plan accordingly to handle a problem and move on, don't get bogged down.

    +1 to the comments listed already. Stay mobile, stay sharp. Function check your firearm and make sure all your gear is good to go prior to going on duty.

    Don't forget to load your silver bullets. Lol Plus one on all the above. Stay loose and fluid.

    Cool

    What everyone else said plus wear garlic around your neck along with a crucifix and carry a sharpened stake.

    Stay safe !

    Definitely just go with the flow, and understand people are in a different moo dand state of mind than usual. Deal with them accordingly and move on.

    jwhite summed it up nicely: people are in a different mood and state of mind on a night when they think they can get away with some mishief they would not normally even think to do.

    Kind of like New Year's Eve, more affectionately called "amateur night:" the night the amateur drunk drivers contend with the more experienced ones.

    The only photo I have of me in uniform was on a Halloween night. I looked more like a hardened criminal (exhausted) than a LEO. The night was very busy with more calls than we could possibly handle. The main thing is to not mistake a prank for an assault. Now back in my day, we didn’t have cell phone cameras and paintball guns so I’d be careful for all that.
