Halloween Safe From Sex Offenders

video preview image

EUGENE, Ore. — This Halloween, there’s an important question trick-or-treaters should ask themselves. How well do they know their neighborhoods?

It’s imporant because they could be knocking on the door of a registered sex offender and be unaware. More than a dozen states have laws limiting what sex offenders can do on Halloween. Some have holiday curfews, others ban predators from passing out candy, but that’s not the case in Oregon.

One way you can do that is by checking the website kidslivesafe.com. It pinpoints risk in your area. All you have to do is type in your address, zip code or city and it will map out predators living near you.

The site says there are 60 registered sex offenders living in Eugene and 60 living in Springfield. The site also includes photos and details of their convictions.

The service is about $30 a month. You can also opt for a 7 day trial for just $1. This is just one option. Oregon State Police has a free site that offers information within a 1 mile radius of your location. http://sexoffenders.oregon.gov/SorPublic/Web.dll/main?cmd=map&S=40520388625

    …or, you can go to http://sexoffenders.oregon.gov/ and find the same info for free. This reads suspiciously like an ad, and it’s especially annoying since this information is out there free of charge.

    IT IS AN AD. JR-You are right with your link. WOW-this news station needs to do their homework before putting a story up like this, making the reader find out for themselves it is a paid site.

    A person can also get the info through the Oregon State Police website.
