The Newberry County Sheriff’s Office (NCSO) and the South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services (SCDPPPS) will again have a curfew for Newberry County Registered Sex Offenders and offenders under its supervision for a sex offense.
“The Halloween curfew has worked well in the past to provide peace of mind to the public. We want parents to know that there is an extra measure of protection when their children go Trick-or-Treating, said Sheriff Foster.
Newberry County Sex Offenders Halloween Rules
• Curfew: 5:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. statewide on Halloween day.
• This applies to all persons who are monitored under the Newberry County Sex Offender Registry as well as those under supervision for a sex offense. For those who are not currently under supervision, but are monitored, this is used only as a means of ensuring the public’s peace of mind as well as minimizing unnecessary issues for offenders.
• Curfew will be enforced through law enforcement officer surveillance techniques throughout Newberry County.
• Sex offenders are being notified that there will be no lights on outside their houses; no candy distribution; no participating in Halloween parties or carnivals.
• Registered sex offenders in some counties will have to report to a designated location for the duration of the curfew. They will be notified by their Probation/Parole Agents.
For information regarding sex offenders in your neighborhood, you can check the State Law Enforcement Division web site: (http://services.sled.sc.gov/sor/).
Additional Tips for Parents on Halloween

2. Only go to houses of people you know and stay with groups whenever possible.
3. Children can enjoy Trick-or-Treating as long as they are with a responsible adult.
