Halloween is Friday and trick-or-treaters will be out in full force across the Lake of the Ozarks. The universal sign to let trick-or-treaters know you’re handing out candy is to turn on your porch light. However, for some turning on the porch light on Halloween is against the law. That’s according to sergeant Arlyne page with the Osage Beach police department who says registered sex offenders are required to avoid children on Halloween.
Sergant Page offers the following tips to parents.
Sergeant Page also encourages parents to check the online sex offender registry before they take their kids trick or treating. The Osage Beach police department will also be having a trunk-or-treat on Halloween from 4 to 8 pm.
