Halloween should be a night of fun for kids accompanied by parents to go door to door in your neighbor for Trick-or-Treating, but it can be very dangerous if you have a sex offender in your neighborhood.

The Department of Public Safety want to remind parents of minors who are Trick-or-Treating this year to use caution by using their website which gives an updated map of sex offenders who could reside in your neighborhood.

Once you're on the site you will be able to enter your address and it will provide known sex offenders who could reside in your neighborhood and their ranking.

  • H - High
  • M - Medium
  • L - Low

Their map is also available on the DPS mobile app as it provides an interactive and simpler way to use the map that displays name, address, and proximity of know sex offenders in your area.

You can download the app on your Android or Apple device.

Have a safe and fun Halloween!
