Interactive Map Helps Parents Avoid Sex Offenders During Trick Or Treating

October 26, 2018

If you are planning on going trick or treating this year with the kids and want to make sure you're not getting too close to people who you'd never want around your kids then you should type your address/zipcode into the Texas Department Of Public Safety's interactive map. By typing in your zipcode it will show you the location of sex offenders in and around your neighborhood with pinpoint accuracy.

It's actually a tad creepy to me to realize how many lived in and around my neighborhood. The accuracy is astonishing but it's also a great tool to protect our children against those who have done harm in the past. We can only hope people turn their lives around and no longer care to endanger children and others but it's better to be safe than sorry.
