It's almost time when kids will go door-to-door, collecting treats from the people in your neighborhood. Make sure you check the sex offender registry before heading out.

Police departments are preparing themselves and their list of neighborhood sex offenders, to ensure the safety of all children and that the offenders abide by the law.

In some communities, sex offenders are required to display a sign on their front lawn to warn anyone who may approach their property.

There are many sex offender apps available on your hand-held devices, to help inform parents on what houses to avoid on Halloween.

For more information on the apps, such as 'Offender Locator', simply go here.

If you observe Halloween, be careful and keep your little treasures safe.
