The Cameron County Sheriff's Office says there are over 700 sex offenders registered in their database.

Butts County Sheriff Gary Long tells news outlets the signs conform with a Georgia law forbidding sex offenders from participating in Wednesday's holiday.

As you take your kids or grandkids trick-or-treating on Halloween, officers want you to know that registered sex offenders won't be allowed to come into contact with them.

Long admitted that some of the more than 50 sex offenders in the county were not happy with the "preventive measure". Authorities will go door-to-door to make sure they are following the rules. "I'm in the business of keeping safe communities and making sure that our children are protected".

Long admitted chances are slim that any of the registered sex offenders in the county would try anything.

The signs include the text "Warning!"

Offenders can be placed on the list for sexual offenses besides child-related crimes.

Zach Dodge, Reporting:"In your experience, do you feel like this helps parents feel more safe when they're out with their kids?"

Connecticut residents can check for sex offenders in the area by visiting the Connecticut Sex Offender Registry.

In Vermont, you can look up sex offenders' names, what they look like and what city they live in, but you can't see exact addresses. So, they're actually less likely to target a random trick-or-treater.

The Sheriff said the signs are placed in accordance with Georgia law.
