Hello, I’m Parole Agent Nicholas O’Neal, from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation with a message from Operation Boo to You!

We’ll be out in the community this Halloween Night for the 26th year in a row, helping keep kids safe.

Our Division of Adult Parole Operations, has important tips from Boo to you:

Parents, and others leading trick or treat groups, can go to www.CDCR.CA.Gov/Boo to get links info that help keep kids safe by following a route that steers clear from sex-offenders’ homes.

www.CDCR.CA.Gov/Boo can also help parents with age-appropriate tips on how to talk to kids about sex-offenders in an un-scary manner.

Lastly, remember, instances of sexual abuse have not been prevalent on Halloween in California since Boo began more than 2 decades ago. So, have fun! And please also remember to watch Operation Boo coverage, Halloween Night on your local station as we work to help bolster your Kids’ Safety — from Boo to you!
