COLUMBUS, KS --- The Cherokee County Sheriff urges parents to check the online Cherokee County Sex Offender Registry. Sheriff David Groves says it's especially important to know where these individuals live on events like Halloween. There are currently 70 registered offenders in Cherokee County.
Log on to the database, type in your address, and the picture along with the information of each sex offender near you will be displayed. The county's website also allows you to get instant notifications when a sex offender moves in to your neighborhood or changes address.
"It takes the burden away from parents and family members where typically when you look at a state registry you have to go there every day if you really want to be kept up to date where this way we monitor those locations for you and send you notifications," says Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves.
