Wisconsin sex offenders must stay home Halloween
MADISON (AP) — Police are teaming up with parole agents across Wisconsin to make sure sex offenders stay home on Halloween night.
All of Wisconsin’s 5,000 registered sex offenders under active community supervision are subject to special restrictions on Halloween.
Grace Roberts, who heads the Department of Corrections sex offender program, tells Wisconsin Public Radio they began actively enforcing the rules under the Halloween Knock and Talk program about eight years ago.
Offenders are barred from putting up Halloween decorations that might attract children to knock on their doors.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke says his officers will be out both this weekend and next reminding registrants they’re being watched
