Sex offenders under the supervision of the New York State Corrections Department are being closely monitored on this Halloween to help ensure that New York’s children - and their parents - can safely enjoy holiday festivities in their neighborhoods. It's the 7th year for Operation Halloween where the agency imposes special conditions on sex offenders.
Sex offenders on parole statewide are required to stay home until 6 am tomorrow once they get out of work or are done with community service this afternoon. Also parolees are not permitted to participate in any Halloween activity; they are not permitted to wear any costume, mask or other disguise; and they can not open the door to trick-or-treaters. Parole officers will be conducting unannounced curfew visits.
