The Department of Corrections and Community Supervision will have special conditions and closely monitor sex offenders to make sure kids are safe on Halloween. 

About 2,700 sex offenders under supervision will be contacted by their parole officer on Halloween night. 

Officials say as part of Operation Halloween, sex offenders: 

  • At the end of their work day, must remain in their home until 6 a.m. the following morning.
  • Cannot open their doors, give out candy or participate in any "trick-or-treating."
  • Cannot wear any costume, mask, or other disguise.

Parents can check the state's Sex Offender Registry as another way to help keep their children safe on Halloween night and any other time of the year.
