Each year, the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Sex Offender Unit, La. Probation & Parole-Natchitoches District Office Agents, Natchitoches Police Department and other law enforcement agencies have strict guidelines prohibiting sex offenders from attending Halloween festivities. Law enforcement has offender’s addresses and plan to visit each one according to NPSO sex offender Detective Lt. Jonathan Byles. In the past, some communities celebrate Halloween on days other than Oct. 31. Contact Detective Byles at 357-7841 to provide the date and location of any Halloween or fall fest event.
