Between Austin, San Antonio, Houston & Bryan/College Station
Halloween is a fun time for the children in the Smithville community as well as the children in the rural areas who come to Smithville to participate in Halloween activities. In an effort to create a safer environment for the children, the Smithville Police Department will be participating in “Operation Lights Out” in conjunction with the Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office. This operation will help ensure that registered sex offenders who are on parole or probation abide by the conditions placed on them. Detective Hubbard will be checking the sex offender's residences to assure that they are at home, their porch lights are turned off, and their residences are not attracting trick-or-treaters. Violations can result in the parole or probation being revoked. The Smithville Police Department will also have extra patrols on the street during Halloween to help ensure a safe environment for our children.
