MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Memphis Police officers want to make sure your kids are safe this week as they trick-or-treat.

The Tennessee Department of Corrections is working with local law enforcement to ensure sex offenders stick to the rules. It's called Operation Blackout.

Local police, the U.S. Marshals Office and parole officers will be out making sure convicted sex offenders stay in their homes between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m.

They also have to leave their porch lights off on Halloween night, and they cannot open doors for trick-or-treaters, only law enforcement. They are also not allowed to display fall decorations or wear costumes.
