There are approximately 230 registered sex offenders in Marshall County and the sheriff’s office wants the community to know where they live so they can choose to avoid those houses when trick-or-treating.
“We do the best we can in making sure sex offenders live where they tell us, so it is crucial that our citizens visit our website to see who the registered sex offenders are and where they are living,” said Sheriff Phil Sims.
Residents are encouraged to check any addresses where they or their family spend time.
“The mapping and address feature found on the website pinpoints exactly where an offender lives,” Sims said.
Residents will also find many other beneficial tools on-line, such as the ability to sign up for free automated email notifications informing if an offender moves into their neighborhood or around another address.
