Sex offenders in your neighborhood? Check before Halloween

(KFVS) -

Halloween is the night you send your loved ones around the neighborhood, crazily dressed, knocking on doors and asking for candy.  

But do you know who lives in all of the houses on your street or neighborhood?  

If you are lucky, you do. But otherwise there is a quick way to check out who lives in your area.

FamilyWatchdog.org is one of many ways you can search for criminal offenders who live in your area.  

This includes sex offenders.  

The site allows you to type in your address or just your zip code and it will bring up a map of your area.  

There are icons which represent different types of convictions with links to the person who is registered at that home.  

Some of the links contain pictures of people convicted of the crime.

You do not need to register to get the information.  

This service allows you to sign up for emails for when people move into and out of your area.
