Map information from the Illinois Sex Offender Registry.
As your little ones and not-so-little-ones prepare to go door to door for Trick or Treat this Halloween, Patch offers a map of our town's registered sex offenders.
- Registered sex offenders are not allowed to distribute candy to children; however, the law does give leeway to sex offenders who are parents or legal guardians of children under age 18 living in the home.
- Registered sex offenders often are advised by police to keep porch lights turned off to avoid attracting children on Halloween and to not answer the door.
- Sex offenders are ordered to report to their respective districts where they will view a 20-minute, educational video detailing their responsibilities and requirements under the law, such as not living with 500 feet of a school, no social networking, and regularly updating their home address.
