Dept. of Correction Division of Parole Services Partners with Local Police Agencies for a Safe Halloween

“Operation Safe Halloween,” has run now for 13 years through the Department of Corrections.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) – The Indiana Department of Corrections is making sure that Halloween will be safe for all children this weekend.

The Division of Parole Services will be working with local police departments to ensure paroled sex offenders follow special curfews and restrictions during their community’s trick-or-treating hours.

According to the Department of Correction, each sex offender is required to attend a mandatory meeting, turn in safety plans for Halloween night or remain home and not pass out candy.

“Operation Safe Halloween,” has run now for 13 years through the Department of Corrections. This operation requires sex offenders to refrain from displaying Halloween decorations and keep their outside lights turned off on Halloween night.

“Our goal is simple; to keep Halloween safe for families and young children”, said Troy Keith, the Director of Parole Services for the Department of Correction.

Parole officers will also be making unannounced home visits during Halloween evening to the homes of sex offenders.
