Sex Offender Watch: A Map of Homes to Keep on Your Radar this Halloween
There are 10 registered sex offenders listed as living in Homewood-Flossmoor. As Halloween approaches, see where registered sex offenders live, according to the Illinois Sex Offender Registry.
In general, sex offender laws center on offenders registering in person each year at the local police department. They must do so for a required 10-year registration period, unless they are separately required to register for life. Offenders are prohibited from living within 500 feet of a school, daycare center, youth center or other facility that caters to children younger than 18 years old.

How the Map Works
The map is interactive, meaning you can zoom in, zoom out, or move it around to see all the plotted points.
Floating your cursor over one of the markers will give you the name of the sex offender and his address. Clicking on the marker will give you more information about the specific charge.
The yellow markers represent sex offenders who are not listed as sexual predators. The red pins are those who are labeled as sexual predators in the registry.
The term refers to anyone convicted after July 1, 1999 of certain violations in the Criminal Code of 1961. Sexual predators are required to register for their entire lives.
