SVU receives recognition
Special to the Enquirer
The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit recently received a National Certificate of Recognition by The OffenderWatch Network, the nation’s largest sex offender registry system.
The MCSO Special Victims Unit consists of registry compliance coordinator Cindy Crowell, Sgt. Charles Radke and Investigator Caleb Brooks.
The SVU team manages approximately 200 sex offenders and has a 99 percent compliance rate among offenders – meaning 1 percent of the offenders have a compliance issue during the year.
Individuals who fall out of compliance are quickly followed up with by investigators and can face additional charges.
In addition, the SVU team also works to ensure complete, accurate and comprehensive offender records; to track offenders moving in and out of the county; and to promote interagency cooperation with the U.S. Marshals Service investigating and locating runaway offenders.
The OffenderWatch network is used by more than 3,000 local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in 37 states.
