Last year, Debbie Ray posted a link to the Sex Offender Registry site just in time for Halloween (if I am not mistaken, sex offenders can NOT play host to Trick-or-Treaters) to help keep families safe for the event.

It seems to me that I am hearing an increase in reports of sex offender 'activity' in the area.

I thought that it would be a good idea to re-post the link that can be a useful tool to give you more power to protect yourself and your family.

Parents who are concerned and unsure of where to find accurate information regarding the presence of sex offenders and predators in their neighborhoods can visit the Louisiana Sex Offender and Child Predator Registry on-line.

You can look up important addresses and review the list of registered sex offenders living within a 0.25-2 mile radius of that specific address. The mapping and address feature found on the website pinpoints exactly where an offender lives, therefore, educating citizens and giving them another tool to help them protect their families.
