OffenderWatch® a sex offender mapping and alerting service aids citizens in avoiding dangerous homes.

Citizens like to think that every home is like their own, unfortunately that is not reality. In Ripley County, there is approximately 69 registered sex offenders.  Citizens are encouraged to look up important addresses and review the list of registered sex offenders living within a 0.25-2 mile radius of that specific address.  The mapping and address feature found on the website pinpoints exactly where an offender lives.

Perhaps the most beneficial aspect of the address monitoring feature is that once your important addresses and e-mail address have been registered the system will automatically alert you via e-mail when an offender moves within 0.25-2 mile radius of the registered address.  You can register any and all of the addresses where your children spend a lot of time, for example friends, grandparents, or babysitters addresses.  The alerts are in real-time and sent out via e-mail as soon as a new offender has registered with the Sheriff’s Office.

Citizens should click on this link “sex offender registry” and follow the instructions to check their neighborhood and sign up to receive e-mail alerts.  Sex Offender Addresses
