Girl dressed as Piglet gets candy while trick or treating
Tampa, Florida-- Choruses of "Trick or treat," requests will soon fill the air as kids in costumes hit the streets in search of candy, sugar, sweets-- treats! And this year, Tampa PD has a trick up their sleeves to keep them safe...
It's called Operation "No Tricks, Just Treats", and police say it's already underway.
Officers this week are hand delivering nearly 240 notices to registered sex offenders and predators, warning them not to put up Halloween decorations or interact with young trick-or-treaters.
Officers will carry out the second part of the operation on Halloween by checking up on those warned, and making sure they're following fright-night rules.
If you see something out of the ordinary on Halloween, you're encouraged to call the Tampa Police Department, or submit tips to Crime Stoppers:
