TYLER - No lights, no decorations, no trick-or-treaters this halloween for sex offenders.
Officials tell KETK they will be checking on the nearly ninety sex offenders in Smith County to make sure they're staying in doors, and away from the public and, they say this year, like in years past, they don't expect any problems, but there is always a need to be cautious.
Robert Gray with the Intensive Supervision Unit in Smith County says "We'll be going by there doing checks and we'll be going by their houses to make sure they are at home because they're also to be at there house as well during that time and make sure they're not answering the door for other than police and emergency."
