It's Halloween, and while the kids are all about the candy, police want you to be focused on keeping kids safe , the say drivers should slow down in neighborhoods and beware of kids darting into the streets.
When it comes to costumes, make sure they don’t obstruct your vision or your kids’ vision, and make sure they include reflective areas so drivers can see you well. Parents should inspect all candy before it's eaten.
Police say they plan to closely monitor sex offenders during Halloween.
The monitoring program, in its seventh year, places special conditions on those parolees.
Regulations require sex offnders to be home Wednesday afternoon, or following the end of their workday or program, they must remain at home until 6 a.m. Thursday morning.
Sex offenders are prohibited from participating in any Halloween activity, wearing any costume or mask and opening their door to trick-or-treaters.
The state also maintains the Sex Offender Registry online with information about Level 2 and Level 3 sex offenders, considered to be at medium or high risk of new offenses.
