CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -

Today marks one of the most popular holidays for children — dressing up in Halloween costumes and going door to door to ask for candy.

Law enforcement officers in Georgia and Tennessee also will be going door to door, but not in search of treats.

"We are targeting higher-risk offenders," said David Lane, deputy district director for the Tennessee Department of Correction's Chattanooga office. "These are offenders whose victim was under the age of 18, offenders who are homeless, or offenders that the probation or parole officer has deemed necessary due to other reasons or concerns."

Authorities hope to ensure that offenders won't commit new crimes on a night when droves of children are out.
