Patch is helping parents in Naperville keep their kids safe this Halloween by providing a map of the area's registered sex offenders.
In general, the laws center on sex offenders registering in person each year the local police department. They must do so for a required 10-year registration period, unless they are separately required to register for life.
Offenders are prohibited from living within 500 feet of a school, daycare center, youth center or other facility that caters to children younger than 18 years old.

How the Map Works

Floating your cursor over one of the markers will give you the name of the sex offender and their address. Double clicking on the marker will give you more information about the specific charge.
