"With Halloween this week, I encourage parents to make a safety plan to ensure the safest route possible when their children are out trick-or-treating. One way to do that is to utilize Offender Watch, a searchable database where users can search for convicted sex offenders who reside in their community," commented District Attorney Soares.
