Halloween is a fun, spooky time, that's true, but it's also a holiday that involves knocking on strangers' doors at night and asking for treats. While we do want to focus on the positives, it's important to keep your children safe in the middle of all this fun-having, and knowing where sex offenders live in your neighborhood is a good first step to take.

Legally, the state of Colorado has a database of sex offenders and their current addresses, and if you want to avoid those houses while trick or treating tonight, you can access the map using this link.

Colorado.gov

Colorado.Gov makes it easy, allowing you to search by zip code or county, or you can check out the map as a whole. They also provide an easy key at the bottom to see multiple offenders, those who have failed to register, and others.

Stay safe-- and Happy Halloween!
