Be Careful What Door You Knock On While Trick Or Treating
ALACHUA COUNTY - Ghouls and goblins aren't the scariest things parents have to watch out for during Halloween.
Law enforcement is warning families to be careful which doors they knock in as they go trick or treating with their children.
There are 386 registered sex offenders in Alachua County, and they will be monitored by both sheriff's deputies and Gainesville police Wednesday.
Sex offenders on probation are not allowed to participate in Halloween activities such as decorating their houses, giving out candy and appearing in costumes.
Sexual predators or offenders not on probation don't have the same constraints.
Which is why police are asking parents to make sure they know which neighborhoods predators live in.
To find out the location of sexual offenders in your area, go to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's website, and enter in your address and zip code for a complete list of offenders.
