Putnam County Offering Alerts About Sex Offenders

10/6/17 – 5:21 A.M.

Putnam County residents have a new way to check to see if any sex offenders are living near them. The Putnam County Sentinel reports the sheriff’s office is offering email alerts to residents and businesses in the county. A flier from Sheriff Brian Siefker says offenders move frequently, so an email alert system makes more sense than asking people to check a map every week.
