TULSA - Concerns about keeping children safe on Halloween has some city leaders looking at a new law that would ban sex offenders from decorating their homes or passing out candy during the holiday.
District 2 City Councilor Jeannie Cue tells KRMG she was approached by constituents and asked to look into the issue.
"Other cities do have ordinances that do not allow sex offenders to decorate and pass out candy at Halloween," she told KRMG.
She said she's not ready to propose an ordinance just yet, but has asked the city legal department to check into laws passed by other communities.
"They're pulling other cities' records and looking into it."
She has several questions, she added. "Is this something Tulsa needs? How could we enforce it, if we decide to pass an ordinance?" she asked, rhetorically.
KRMG did some research, and turned up a 2009 study which indicates no increase in sex offenses against children during Halloween.
However, at least ten jurisdictions in the U.S. have passed laws that restrict the activities of registered sex offenders during Halloween events.
