While tens of thousands of York County children and their parents are trick-or-treating tonight, York County Sheriff’s Deputies will be on a trick-or-treat hunt of their own — for registered sex offenders.
York County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Trent Faris.:
Faris says while there is nothing preventing children and their families from approaching a registered sex offender’s home, Sheriff Burce Bryant doesn’t recommend it.:
Faris says while authorities will be handling those offenders, there are simple steps parents can take to keep their kids as they trick-or-treat.:
Faris encourages parents to go with their children and make trick-or-treating a family event, only trick-or-treat at houses that are well lit and never let kids enter a home without their parents’ permission.
