Douglass, KS -- Butler County sheriff's deputies were in Douglass Tuesday.

This week, the sheriff's office warrant officers have been conducting what's called offender watch. They are making sure all 114 of the county's sex offenders are still living at the listed address before trick-or-treating.

The sheriff's office is asking every registered offender to put up the poster they are handing out, warning children not to stop to trick-or-treat at their home on Halloween.

Deputy Aaron Waldorf says most sex offenders laugh at the posters.

"They don't take it serious, we take it very serious they laugh wad it up and throw it in the trash." says Waldorf.

"It's a benefit to the community in general, you don't want to pick them out but you want to be away." says grandmother Vicki Akers.
