If you are worried about sending your child door-to-door for trick-or-treating, here is a tool that might help ease your mind.
Parents in Kentucky can check for thousands of sex offenders by street and city online. The sex offender registry will allow parents to see a written list of sex offenders around the area in which you are planning to trick-or-treat.
Registered sex offenders are required to update their address in the registry within three days of moving to a new home or face legal consequences, according to state officials.
Indiana and Ohio have made an interactive map for a similar purpose.
