Sheriff Darr advises safety for Halloween as he keeps sex offenders off the streets

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

Sheriff John Darr says everyone should take safety precautions while out and about this Halloween.

With the increased number of people planning to walk the streets, he has messages for both kids and adults. "Make sure if you can, go out in pairs," he says to trick-or-treaters. "If you can get a flashlight, get a flashlight, but I always like to gear my message towards the adults and the people driving out and about in our community. You're going to have a lot of kids outside trick-or-treating tomorrow. Be on the lookout."

Muscogee County will be rounding up registered sex offenders for trick-or-treating hours. 109 of the offenders will report to the Columbus Day Reporting Center at 5:30 p.m. and stay until 8 p.m.

Afterwards they will return home and stay there until 5 a.m. Friday.

The rest of Muscogee County's 372 registered sex offenders will be checked on throughout the night.

In Russell County, sex offenders on parole will report to the courthouse annex for a meeting from 6 to 9 p.m.
