Tracking Sex Offenders Becomes More Efficient

Terry Easterling, Supervisor, Community Protection Terry Easterling, Supervisor, Community Protection

There are more than 400 registered sex offenders currently living in the Amarillo City Limits. We went online to www.familywatchdog.us typed in Amarillo and found a map detailing where sex offenders live, but not where they work.

That's all changing soon though... by mid-summer, you'll be able to go to the texas department of public safety website (http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/) to see where the offenders work. Sex offenders are required to update their work status within seven days of switching jobs, and if they don't they could face more time in jail.

You'll also see that sex offenders are classified by risk level, but don't be fooled. Terry Easterling of Community Protection tells me that those labeled low risk are just as much of a risk as those labeled high. They are all dangerous and there is no such thing as a no risk offender.
