Residents can be alerted with a sex offender moves nearby

The Pacific County Sheriff’s Office wants to make sure that residents are aware of all registered sex offenders in their area.

Sheriff Scott Johnson said in a release, “In Pacific County, there is approximately 100 registered sex offenders. With summer around the corner we encourage citizens to review our website to see which of these offenders live around them.”

OffenderWatch is a sex offender mapping and alerting service that shows exactly where an offender lives and citizens can sign up for automatic email alerts should an offender move close within an area.

“The benefit of registering for this confidential e-mail alert service allows us to monitor your important addresses for you, thereby keeping you up to date of newly registered offenders and making it unnecessary for you to have to check your important addresses daily or even weekly. You can register any and all of the addresses where your children spend a lot of time, for example friends, grandparents, or babysitters addresses” says Sheriff Johnson.

All alerts are in real-time and sent out via e-mail as soon as a new offender has registered with the Sheriff’s Office.

Residents can view RSOs in their area already through the Pacific County Sheriff’s Office website at
