The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office issued Halloween safety tips and also made it a point to comment on neighborhoods with registered sex offenders. It should be noted that many people in the area are choosing to do their trick or treating on October 30th, since it is supposed to be very rainy on the 31st. So this is something that folks should be aware of ahead of time.

The Sheriff's Office said, in a news release, that they would be paying close attention to neighborhoods with registered sex offenders while children are out trick or treating.

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office will be paying special attention to the neighborhoods in which registered sex offenders live. Registered sex offenders who are on parole will be required to: place a sign on their door indicating that their residence will not be giving out candy, keep their exterior lights off, and display no outdoor Halloween decorations. The Sheriff’s Office Sex and Violent Offender Unit will be making increased random checks on registered sex offenders to verify their compliance with all stipulations established for them.
