The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is urging Kansans to check the state’s registry of sex and drug offenders before heading out for trick-or-treating. Melissa Underwood, with KBI, says the organization offers a searchable database.
“They should definitely be vigilant in checking our site and seeing if there are registered offenders in their area and then they just likely need to avoid those areas along their trick or treat route,” says Underwood.
Underwood says there are around 11,000 people on the state’s offender registry. She says most offenders are not barred from taking part in Halloween activities.
