TALLAHSSEE, Fla. – FDLE Capitol Police Officer Angela Ormerod offers these tips for keeping your family safe while trick or treating this Halloween. 
“Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights.  Trick or treat in groups and never allow small children to visit a door without a trusted adult,” says Officer Ormerod. “To prevent unwanted people from entering your home, keep your doors locked, even if you are just outside handing out candy.”
Remember to download the FDLE Mobile App to easily search Florida’s Sex Offender Registry.  The “Search Sexual Offenders and Predators” button is one of eight FDLE public services featured in the mobile app.  The app makes it easy for citizens to see where sexual offenders have registered a residential address in Florida.
