The official Trick or Treat for South Milwaukee this year falls on Monday, Oct. 31st from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Sex offenders who are under active supervision have restrictions placed on them during Halloween, which are as follows:
- No Halloween decorations can be displayed inside or outside of their residence
- No handing out candy or participating in trick or treat activities
- No wearing a Halloween costume
- No turning on their porch light during trick or treating hours
You may view sex offenders in your neighborhood by visiting the Wisconsin Department of Corrections (WI DOC) Website at- http://offender.doc.state.wi.us/public/. Please take the time to read through the conditions of use. Please also keep in mind that only those on active supervision must follow the above restrictions. Just because an offender’s name appears on the website does not mean they are on active supervision. You will not know their status unless you select their name and look for the bolded section titled “Incarceration/Supervision Status”. Random checks may be performed by the South Milwaukee Police Department and DOC Probation and Parole agents to ensure they are complying with these restrictions.
If you have further questions, please look through the WI DOC FAQ section at the above address, or call the South Milwaukee Police Department at 414-768-8060.
