In Wisconsin, there are about 5,400 sex offenders on a Halloween "ban" list, which has been in effect for 7 years.  

It's put out by the State Department of Corrections. The tally includes around 300 in Dane County.

Grace Roberts, the Director of the D-O-C's Sex Offenders Program says offenders cannot be outside of their homes on Halloween night, they can't wear costumes, put out candy, have Halloween decorations up or their porch lights on.

Officers will be doing compliance checks.
