SHERIFF’S OFFICE CONDUCTS

SEX OFFENDER OPERATION

October 24, 2018

El Paso, TX – Each year near Halloween, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office conducts inspections of registered sex offenders’ homes to ensure that they are not displaying any decorations which may lure or attract children to their residence.

On Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018, the Sheriff’s Office Sex Offender Registration and Tracking Unit along with deputies assigned to the Targeted Response Unit conducted inspections and verifications at 88 homes of registered Sex Offenders.  Of the 88 homes that were inspected, two were found to be in violation of parole or probation stipulations prohibiting the display of decorations.  The information was forwarded to the respective supervision officers for further investigation.

The Sheriff’s Office reminds everyone to exercise caution and safety this Halloween. 

· Never allow children to go out on their own; stay in groups and always have an adult present. 

· Wear bright reflective clothing and carry a flashlight and cell phone with you.

· Avoid any homes that are off the main roadway.

· Discard any unwrapped treats, and report any suspicious activity.

· Stay alert and aware of your surroundings.

· Remember the safety and protection of children is everyone’s responsibility.

The Texas Department of Public Safety has a Sex Offender website available to the public; https://records.txdps.state.tx.us/SexOffenderRegistry .
