CINCINNATI -- Before trick-or-treating this Halloween with your children, you might want to know whose door you're knocking on.
Ohio and Indiana list thousands of sex offenders using an interactive map -- a tool that allows you to search and pinpoint the locations of registered sex offenders in your neighborhood and beyond.
According to state officials, registered sex offenders are required to update their address in the registry within three days of moving to a new home or face legal consequences.
