The U.S. Marshals Service and Las Vegas police are conducting a three-day joint enforcement operation in Clark County as part of an ongoing effort to make Halloween safer for children.
The agencies are joining forces for “Operation Trick-or-Treat” to ensure that sex offenders are in compliance with their sex offender registration requirements. The agencies will be conducting more than 200 compliance checks in the county, according to a statement released Friday by the U.S. Marshals Service.
The service provided the following tips to help keep children safe on Halloween:
- Don’t allow children to go trick-or-treating alone.
- Children should never go into homes without the permission of their parents.
- Teach children to “Shout out Loud” and scream if someone tries to grab them.
- Children should tell their parents if someone tries to offer them special treats.
