DARKE COUNTY — Addresses of the 93 registered sex offenders in Darke County were checked on Tuesday morning by Darke County Sheriff’s Office, Greenville Police Department and the Adult Parole Authority, according to the spokesperson with Darke County Sheriff’s Office.
“While verification is an ongoing process throughout the year by Deputies on patrol, a mass verification is an efficient way to establish sex offender address verification and focus on those subjects that need appropriate follow-up to ensure the safety of our community,” the spokesperson said.
Deputies were able to verify 69 of those offenders, the spokesperson said. The other 24 offenders were checked but contact with those offenders was not made.
A few of the reasons contact was not made with the remaining offenders including the person was not at a place of employment, they were traveling, they refused to answer the door or they absconded, the spokesperson said.
Deputies will be following up with those remaining offenders and verifying addresses, according to the spokesperson.
“Any offenders found not to be in compliance with the law will be investigated and charges will be presented to the Darke County Prosecutor’s Office for review,” the spokesperson with Darke County Sheriff’s Office said.
