Keeping an Eye on Sex Offenders

By  | 

In a program called Operation Safe Spirits, the Illinois Department of Corrections is keeping a closer watch on the state's 1100 paroled sex offenders this Halloween. State law prohibits paroled sex offenders to go outside, dress in costumes, pass out candy or have their porch lights on during Halloween. 539 registered sex offenders live in Winnebago County.
