Sex Offenders Might get a Knock on Their Door

Sex offenders in Middle Tennessee can expect a knock on their door over the next several days as officers begin Operation Blackout. The goal of this sweep is to make sure sex offenders are not participating in any Halloween events.
People convicted of sex crimes have all signed a set of fall rules that prohibits them from participating in trick-or-treating. Sex offenders are not allowed to have their porch lights on, open their doors to anyone except law enforcement, to have fall decorations, wear costumes or attend fall festivals or parties.
During the statewide sweep last year, corrections officers checked on 3,000 sex offenders and found 400 violations.
