What can I do, as a concerned citizen?
Contact your Legislators. They make the laws and are responsible to you and your concerns.

Be aware of your surroundings. Talk to your families regarding not only sex offenders, but every aspect of life that could be a danger to them.

Be nosey regarding your children and their friends. Know what they do, who they do it with, and where they do it.

Sex offenders have always been in our communities. Today, we are aware of where the convicted offenders are living.
