Halloween is the one time of year where we find our children in the unique position of knocking on stranger’s doors. While in an ideal world, everyone would have good intentions for our kids, you can never be too safe. For the past couple of years, we've provided you with an updated list of registered sex offenders in our area.

City Data keeps up-to-date lists of sex offenders, with links to each offender’s page on the Iowa Sex Offender Registry. These can be helpful tools for knowing where to trick or treat with your children this Halloween, along with serving as guide for staying safe year-round.

As you can see from the maps below, none of the Quad Cities are immune from having sex offenders. One of the most disturbing things to me is how close of proximity several offenders live to the Family Museum and public library in Bettendorf, which obviously see hundreds of child visitors each week. I've also noticed how many offenders live near parks as well.

Please note that each city has offenders that cannot be displayed on the map, for whatever reason. We always advocate using your best judgment when it comes to trick-or-treating or visiting any home or business with your children throughout the year.

DISCLAIMER: City Data is comprised of information from police records. This list is not all-inclusive, nor are all offenders considered to be of high risk to the community. Additionally, it’s always possible that the offender no longer lives at that address. If you are concerned about a particular threat, please verify the information with local law enforcement.
