WXYZ Detroit put out an interesting warning/reminder the other day, to check the Michigan Sex Offender Registry before you take your kids out trick or treating.

According to the story from WXYZ, it’s very easy to check the registry and a few ways you can search.  You can search based on a radius from your address, you can also search by zip code, or if you have a specific name you want to look up, you can do that too.

State law requires anyone on the sex offender list to update their address within three days of a move.

WXYZ did have one piece of advice,

"When you view the lists and maps generated through the search tool, keep in mind that you may be looking at work addresses in addition to a sex offender's home address."
