(1-5-21) On January 5, 2021, the Darke County Sheriff’s Office, Greenville Police Department, Adult Parole Authority, Darke County Adult Probation, the Villages of Ansonia, Arcanum, Union City and Versailles Police Departments verified addresses of the sex offenders in Darke County. While verification is an ongoing process throughout the year by deputies on patrol, a mass verification at one time is an efficient way to establish sex offender address verification and focus on those subjects that need appropriate follow-up to ensure the safety of our community.
There are 93 registered sex offenders in Darke County. All of those offenders’ addresses were checked and 69 were verified this morning. One address was not checked because of COVID concerns. The other 24 offenders were checked, but contact was not made with those offenders. There are a variety of reasons why contact was not made including the subject was at a place of employment, traveling, refusal to answer the door or absconded.
Deputies from the Darke County Sheriff’s Office will follow up and verify the addresses of these remaining offenders. Any offenders found not to be in compliance with the law will be investigated and charges will be presented to the Darke County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
More information regarding sex offenders can be found on our webpage, darkechttps://sheriffalerts.com/cap_office_disclaimer.php?office=55219&fwd=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5zaGVyaWZmYWxlcnRzLmNvbS9jYXBfbWFpbi5waHA/b2ZmaWNlPTU1MjE5ountysheriff.org.
