Probation officers work to keep Halloween night safe for kids

 RALEIGH – The Division of Community Corrections is implementing a strategy to monitor the activities and whereabouts of sex offenders under probation or parole supervision on Halloween night.

 “Probation officers will be working across the state on Halloween night in an effort to prevent sex offenders under our supervision from using this as an opportunity to re-offend,” said Community Corrections Director Robert Lee Guy.

 Teams of probation/parole officers will conduct home contacts on the evening of Oct. 31 with registered sex offenders under Division of Community Corrections supervision.

 Probation officers will review court ordered sanctions and conditions of supervision with sex offenders.  Those offenders with court-ordered curfews will be ordered to remain at home and those with a court-ordered sanction prohibiting contact with children will be ordered to remain at home with their porch lights off on Halloween night.

 As an alternative, probation district managers may coordinate with local law enforcement and sex offender treatment partners to organize a Halloween night probation supervision contact. At a central location, sex offenders would report to probation officers and participate in a treatment session and/or education session about impending changes to sex offender supervision laws.
