Recently, the Bibb County Sheriff's Department launched a new sex offender registration and public notification website called Offender Watch.
Bibb County will now be a part of a nationwide network of over 5,000 law enforcement agencies which includes over 40 Alabama agencies. The new service is a citizen-friendly, easy to use website that enables citizens to search for potentially dangerous sex offenders and predators, which 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 Bibb County Sheriff's Office as offender information changes and is reported.
As part of this new, innovative service, citizens may enter any address of intrest 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 them an email alerting them if an offender or predator should register an address within their specified radius of their address. The purpose of the program is to lessen the anxiety of citizens by proactively alerting them should an offender move within proximity to them.
