In addition, during the trick-or-treat house, extra patrols will be out in neighborhoods of registered sex offenders to assure a safe and happy Halloween. On Friday, there were 456 register sex offenders Butler County.

“This is a safe way for kids to go trick or treating and for the Sheriff’s Office to meet our great citizens of Butler County,” Jones said.
