The Georgia Department of Community Supervision is partnering with other law enforcement agencies for 'Operation Community Keepers' on Halloween. DCS will conduct the statewide joint operation targeting registered sex offenders and sexual predators on Tuesday, October 31, 2017.

DCS officers throughout Georgia will conduct compliance checks and arrest sex offenders who are in violation of the law and the conditions of their probation or parole.

“The Department of Community Supervision routinely conducts joint operations such as this throughout the state in collaboration with local, county, state and federal entities, said David Morrison, Director of Field Operations. It is a great opportunity to join our resources to enhance public safety while ensuring offenders under our supervision are abiding by their conditions.”

DCS is employing additional measures to make sure trick-or-treaters are safe on Halloween night. All sex offenders under DCS supervision are required to report to a local DCS field office or an alternate location during trick-or-treating hours.
