Sheriff Places No Trick or Treat Signs at Sex Offenders Homes
Should our local Sheriff's Department do something like this?
According to the Butts County Sheriff's Office's Facebook page, this Halloween they are not taking any chances with the possibility of kids trick or treating at a sex offenders house.
The Georgia's Sheriff's Facebook post said that,
As Sheriff, there is nothing more important to me than the safety of your children. This Halloween, my office has placed signs in front of every registered sex offender's house to notify the public that it's a house to avoid. Georgia law forbids registered sex offenders from participating in Halloween, to include decorations on their property. With the Halloween on the square not taking place this year, I fully expect the neighborhoods to be very active with children trick-or-treating. Make sure to avoid houses which are marked with the attached posted signs in front of their residents. I hope you and your children have a safe and enjoyable Halloween. It is an honor and privilege to serve as your sheriff.
Here is the sign that has been put up in front of the houses of registered sex offenders,
Is this something that should be done in the Hudson Valley? What do you think, let us know by leaving us a comment on Facebook.
