The Department of Corrections is restricting sex offenders from taking part in Halloween activities.

They've been told they can't hand out candy, display decorations or dress up in costumes.

In some communities, DOC staff will be conducting unscheduled home visits with sex offenders during trick-or-treating times.

If you notice any violations, call the DOC at 1-877-234-0085.
