In conjunction with the Division of Adult Parole Operations, their GPS Units and their Operation Boo Coordinators statewide, CDCR’s Press Office will coordinate media coverage of Operation Boo. Special attention will be given to coordination of tours for embedded reporters in the major population centers of the state. Official Media Ride-along forms are required to be submitted on a first come, first served basis for journalists who wish to be embedded with the crews on Halloween night. (Media advisory will follow.) The tours will be designed to include the Transient Sex-Offender Curfew Sites (where available) or transient sex-offender GPS tracking compliance checks. The tour will also include traditional compliance checks. Media will also be encouraged to report advance stories about the parent empowerment package during the week before Halloween.
Ride-a- long registration deadline: Registration Forms must be faxed to regional Operation Boo Coordinators by this deadline. Only two people or fewer will be allowed per crew.
Parents and Guardians Educational Component: Visit the Operation Boo page for Educational Component.
Ride-alongs: On Friday, October 31, from 4pm – 10 pm, Media Ride-alongs are being offered on a first-come first-served basis to credentialed news personnel. The Media tours will include compliance checks in sex offenders’ homes and visits to the transient sex offender curfew centers in communities where they are available.
