Operation Safe Treat for Halloween

PIMA COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Several law enforcement agencies including U.S. Marshals will be knocking on doors this evening, but not for trick-or-treat.

The U.S. Marshal's Violent Offender Task Force will be going door to door this Halloween, to check up on about 100 registered sex offenders in Pima County.

Deputies say sex offenders are not supposed to participate in Halloween activities.  That means no decorations and no enticing children into their homes.

About 30 officers from several different agencies will be out and about to make sure these sex offenders are following the rules.

It is a joint effort that includes Tucson Police, the Department of Public Safety and the Pima County Sheriff's Office.   It is all to make sure everyone enjoys Halloween safely. 

Tucson News Now will have a crew riding along with officers at 9 p.m. (Fox 11) and 10 p.m. (KOLD News 13).
