INDIANAPOLIS — The state is requiring paroled sex offenders in Indiana to adhere to restrictions during the trick-or-treat hours for the communities they live in.The Indiana Department of Correction says Operation Safe Halloween helps ensure that Halloween will be safer for children across the state. The program requires that sex offenders attend a mandatory meeting, turn in safety plans for the evening or remain at home and not pass out candy.

Sex offenders who remain at their approved residence have been advised to turn off their outside lights during the evening hours and refrain from displaying Halloween decorations. Some will post signs that they are not passing out candy.

The Correction Department says all sex offenders could face unannounced home visits and compliance checks on Halloween.
