Purple owl and the words Operation Boo To You


Michael McCowan

Hello, I’m Michael McCowan, With CDCR’s Division of Adult Parole Operations.

From Boo to you, it’s our 26th year of Operation Boo; our project to help keep kids safe, — not just at Halloween but all year!

Here’s what we expect from all active sex-offender parolees this Halloween:

  • Sex offender parolees must remain indoors during the 5 p.m. through 5 a.m. curfew and may only open the door to respond to law enforcement officers.
  • All outside home lights must be turned off to discourage children from approaching.
  • They can’t offer Halloween candy or display Halloween decorations

It’s our way of helping make our streets safe, from Boo to you!  And you can help.  Don’t forget to go to http://www.CDCR.CA.GOV/BOO for your free copy of the Operation Boo Parent’s Guide.   It’s got great tips to teach your kids how to spot dangerous behavior in others and a link to help map out a trick or treat route in your area – away from sex-offender’s homes. 

Please, also remember to watch Operation Boo coverage, Halloween Night on your local TV station. It’s all so very – unscary, and free, from Boo to You!
