The Caledonia Police Department conducted a sex offender compliance check during the village’s Halloween trick-or-treating hours, and did not find any violations.

However, the department is investigating a possible residency violation.

Sex offenders are prohibited by village ordinance from passing out candy during Halloween trick-or-treat hours.

Officers conducted 12 compliance checks. And while there weren’t any violations of the village’s trick-or-treating ordinance, a person was arrested for having an outstanding warrant and a possible sex offender residency violations. Detectives are still investigating the possible violations.

The map the village uses to define the child safety zones was changed earlier this year by the Caledonia Police Department.

Caledonia’s ordinance only allows placement in the village for offenders who are originally from Caledonia. Some of the village restrictions for people released after commitment as a sexually violent person (also known as Chapter 980 commitment) are:

  • At least 1,000 feet from a school, church, park, athletic field, trail, playground, conservation district, or H.F. Johnson Park (which is managed by the city); and
  • At least six blocks away from other sex offenders.

Chapter 980 is the statute that outlines how the state can commit people to a secure treatment center if they are deemed a danger to re-offend after completing their prison sentence.

For those not under supervised release, but required to register with the Department of Corrections’ sex offender registry, they must live:

  • At least 2,500 feet away from schools, churches, parks, athletic fields, trails, playgrounds, conservation districts, or H.F. Johnson Park; and
  • At least six blocks away from other sex offenders.
