Albuquerque, NM - This Halloween, the United States Marshal Service, District of New Mexico, will be teaming up with the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department and State of New Mexico Probation and Parole Office to conduct Registered Sex Offender address verification, house checks, and random patrol. The Marshal’s Southwest Investigative Fugitive Team (SWIFT) task force will be all over the state of New Mexico, from the Albuquerque metro area to Las Cruces, NM. Law Enforcement Officers will be knocking on doors to make sure Registered Sex Offenders are in compliance with their probation. Halloween night has special requirements and restrictions Sex Offenders have to comply with. United States Marshal Conrad E. Candelaria is pleased that the “United States Marshals will team with our many law enforcement partners to ensure our children stay safe at the shopping malls and many neighborhoods in our community”.
