Parents if you are going to take your child out trick or treating on Halloween night it is very important that you have the necessary tools to ensure not only the safety of your children, but for you as well.

The Department of Public Safety urges you to go to their website as it will give you an updated map of sex offenders that could live potentially in your neighborhood or surrounding area.

This is also available on your Android or Apple mobile devices as it will display not only their names, but their address and proximity of known sex offenders in your area.
