It is very important to be aware of the possibility of a registered Sex Offender living in your neighborhood.
On July1, 1997 a law went into effect concerning Sex Offender Registration and Notification. Under that law, convicted sex offenders must register for a period of time with their local county sheriffs. Sex offenders are classified as Tier 1 Sex Offender, Tier II Sex Offender, or Tier III Sex Offender. The local Sheriff’s office is required to notify certain residents when a sexual predator or a habitual sex offender, who the court determines is subject to community notification, moves into a specific geographical location.
The following is a link to the Ohio Attorney General's Electronic Sex Offender Registration & Notification (eSORN) searchable website. This database contains information and photographs regarding all registered sex offenders in the State of Ohio. This information is provided by the local county sheriffs.
