Ghouls and goblins have taken over the sally port, or garage, of the new Petersburg Police Department this week, just in time for Halloween. It’s the first of what’s hoped to be an annual Halloween haunted house at the police station. Guylynn Etcher is organizing it and Joe Viechnicki spoke with her about how the idea came about.

Hours are Wednesday, October 31 from 4-6 p.m. and from 7-10 p.m. and Thursday, November 1 from 7-10 p.m. It’s $5 per person and there’s a kids section for younger kids that’s free of charge.
