For the tenth straight year, the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision will impose special conditions and closely monitor supervised sex offenders this Halloween.

Nearly 24-hundred sex offenders under supervision will be visited by their Parole Officer on Halloween night.

The DOCCS has also imposed special conditions on sex offenders.

  • Beginning in the early afternoon on Halloween, or immediately following the end of their work day or completion of an approved community program, all sex offender parolees are to remain in their residence until 6 a.m. the following morning.
  • Parolees cannot open their doors, distribute candy or partake in the act of “trick-or-treating.”
  • Parolees cannot wear any costume, mask or other disguises.

In addition, county Probation Departments, which monitor approximately 5,000 sex offenders under probation supervision, also may have programs in place to monitor those offenders on Halloween.
