Children are particularly vulnerable to sex offenders. Open communication between parents and children is vital to family safety. If a picture is available from the Sheriff's website, show it to your family. In general terms, tell your children that this person has hurt someone before. Explain to them that they should stay away from this individual. Avoid scary details. The purpose behind community notification is to reduce the chance of future victimization by better informing the public.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Is it a matter of time before the offender commits another crime?
- While there is no way that anyone can accurately predict the future behavior of another person, past behavior is in indication of whether an individual, or group, poses a higher risk to the public. Not all offenders will commit another crime; however, knowledge of a potential risk should assist you and your family in avoiding situations that allow for easy access to victims.
- What do I tell my children about known offenders in our area?
- DON'T accept a ride from this person. DON'T go into their home or yard. Tell your parents if this person offers you toys, money or gifts.
