Children across the metro are getting ready to trick-or-treat Monday night. 

That means area police are in full force making sure sex offenders are following the rules as children are walking neighborhood streets. 

In Jackson County, MO, there are clear-cut rules for offenders in the county and on Monday, investigators will conduct a sweep to make sure all of those rules are being followed. 

Those checks will be random and in different parts of the county. 

Law prohibits any convicted sex offender from having contact with children on Halloween. 

They are required to stay inside their homes between 5-10:30 p.m. unless they are required to be somewhere else.

There are also required to leave their lights off and post a sign that says "no candy or treats at this residence."

Anyone who violates the rules will face $1000 fine or up to a year in jail.
