KHQ.COM - Knowledge is power when it comes to protecting yourself from crime; that includes knowing if registered sex offenders live near you. Offender Watch is a sex offender management system endorsed by the National Sheriff's Service.  

The system allows the user to enter an address and find registered sex offenders that live between a quarter mile and two mile radius of that address. The system also posts names, descriptions of the offenders and their offenses. 

It also provides safety tips for parents and ways to identify whether a child is being abused. The system includes warning signs from adults that may signal they have sexual interest in children.   The offenders on this system are not wanted, but the law requires they register as sex offenders. 

Law enforcement feels informing the public of their whereabouts is beneficial to the community; especially considering some are likely to reoffend.
