GREENVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – The Darke County Sheriff’s Office is urging its citizens to be on alert for sexual predators this summer.

It encourages people to take advantage of its Offender Watch program online during the summer months when a lot of children are playing outside.

Sheriff Toby Spencer reports that there are 96 registered sex offenders in Darke County.

He wants people who live near them to be aware of their neighbor.

“The benefit of registering for this confidential email alert service allows us to monitor your important addresses for you, thereby keeping you up to date of newly registered offenders and making it unnecessary for you to have to check your important addresses daily or even weekly. You can register any and all of the addresses where your children spend a lot of time, for example friends, grandparents, or babysitters’ addresses” said Sheriff Spencer.

Visit the Offender Watch mapping and alert system at the Darke County Sheriff’s Office web site.
