Halloween in SC: Emergency Curfew Will Be Issued For Sex Offenders On October 31st


The South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole, and Pardon Services (SCDPPPS) is stepping up to ensure a safer Halloween for our kids. A special curfew will be enforced for certain registered sex offenders from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 31. This applies to those on probation or parole for offenses against children.

During these hours, affected individuals must:

  • Stay indoors 🏠
  • Refrain from putting up Halloween decorations πŸš«πŸ•ΈοΈ
  • Avoid handing out candy 🚫🍬
  • Not attend Halloween festivities πŸš«πŸŽ‰
