What steps should I take to protect my family?
Persons who have served time in jail or prison including sex offenders, even those who haven't satisfied their obligations to register, have always been with us. The best way to cut risk is to take sensible precautions concerning where, when and what you are doing. Know what your family members are doing and where they are. Know your neighbors. Know your neighborhood. Additional personal safety questions can be answered by the Sheriff's Office at 509-574-2625.
