Some registered sex offenders in Anne Arundel County will be under surveillance on Halloween, police said.
The Sex Offense Unit of the county's Criminal Investigations Division will use undercover detectives and patrol officers to ensure that certain registered sex offenders are not taking part in Halloween festivities, the police department said Saturday in a statement.
The Maryland Division of Parole and Probation has identified specific offenders who are not allowed to have contact with children, police said. Anne Arundel County police will use the list to check on some offenders, said Lt. Michael Brothers, a police spokesman.
The Division of Parole and Probation will determine what action to take against offenders who are seen violating their terms of release, police said.
