From now until Halloween, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office Sex Offender Compliance and Awareness Unit (CAP Unit) and the CPSO Warrants Division will be making contact with registered sex offenders in Calcasieu Parish to remind them they cannot wear masks or give candy to children during Halloween. Offenders were also given an orange sign to post on their residence stating "NO CANDY AT THIS RESIDENCE."
During actual trick-or-treating hours on Halloween Day, CPSO CAP Unit and Warrants Division of the Sheriff's Office will be monitoring offenders, assuring they are adhering to the restrictions/requirements.
The CPSO CAP Unit will also continue to conduct address verification of registered child predators throughout Calcasieu Parish to ensure registered sex offenders are in compliance with state laws regulating residency and identification.
