No 6: Kane County Sex Offenders List 2019
Before you take your kids trick-or-treating, many communities and police departments recommend you check the sex-offender registry to avoid trick-or-treating at those locations.
Some communities provide those lists on their police department websites, others refer people to the state or national registry.
As a service, Kane County Connects searches information provided on the Illinois Sex Offender List website and organizes the information by community, so that you can easily find it.
As of Oct. 23, there were more than 590 registered sex offenders in Kane County, IL.
