CUMBERLAND — Parole and probation agents with the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, in collaboration with local law enforcement officers throughout the state, visited the homes of all supervised and convicted sexual offenders for Halloween.

Local officials, including the State’s Attorney's Office, treatment providers and local law enforcement in each Maryland county and Baltimore City developed a coordinated plan to contain sexual offenders on Halloween night.

Offenders were urged to keep their porch lights off, their curtains closed and to post “No Candy” signs on their doors.

Parents may review the Maryland Sexual Offender Registry online at www.dpscs.state.md.us/onlineservs/sor/ or www.socem.info.

In 2006, the Maryland legislature enacted a law requiring sexual offender containment teams to be developed in every county and in Baltimore City.

The teams, organized by the Division of Parole and Probation, meet monthly to coordinate and contain sexual offenders in their jurisdictions.
