Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office launches new sex offender registration website

The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office has launched a new sex offender registration and public notification website called OffenderWatch®. The new website allows Saratoga County residents to search for potentially dangerous sex offenders and predators who may be in close proximity to their homes, places of work, schools, churches and day care centers. The information is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week and is updated in real time by the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office as offender information changes and is reported.

As part of the new service, residents may enter any address of interest to them and see a map and listing of all offenders within a user defined radius (of .25 miles out to 2 miles) of that address. Citizens can then register the address to be continuously monitored by the Sheriff, who will send to them an email alerting them if an offender or predator should register an address within their specified radius of their address.
