Police are advising parents to visit the Connecticut Sex Offender Registry before mapping out their trick-or-treating route this year.
Parents and trick-or-treaters are being urged to follow the following guidelines this Halloween:
"I urge all Connecticut residents to please drive cautiously and obey all traffic laws. Be aware of children who will be running from house to house. We do not want the excitement of this evening marred by a senseless tragedy. This is a fun and scary night, but safety must come first," said Connecticut State Police Col. Danny R. Stebbins in a statement Monday.
