File Photo

Before children head out trick-or-treating for Halloween, parents across Connecticut have an online tool to check in advance to make sure neighborhoods are safe, and which homes to avoid.

Homefacts, a free online directory that provides lists of registered sex offenders offers Connecticut residents quick access to the database.

Residents can search by city, neighborhoods, and individual streets by an interactive map, lists and photos of sex offenders in neighborhoods where kids may trick-or-treat.

The online resource is designed for families to protect their children and those they care for from individuals with problem sexual behaviors.

In addition to the Connecticut Sex Offender Registry, the United States Department of Justice maintains the National Sex Offender Public Registry website: http://www.nsopr.gov.

Through this site you can get information on sex offenders currently registered in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam.

Quick Note: Any Person Who Uses Information in this Registry to Injure, Harass or Commit a Criminal Act Against Any Person Included in the Registry or Any Other Person is Subject to Criminal Prosecution.
