COVINGTON, La. – OffenderWatch, the nation’s leading sex offender registry network, today announced its newest partnership with the Lander County Sheriff’s Office in Nevada. With more than 800,000 registered sex offenders in the United States, specifically more than 6,000 registered sex offenders in Nevada, law enforcement now have access to the OffenderWatch network to help better manage registered sex offenders and communicate with other law enforcement agencies. The Nevada agency joins a national effort to remedy communication and data silos currently found across local, state and federal law enforcement agencies when monitoring and alerting on registered sex offenders.
Through the partnership, online resources are available to educate and inform the public on ways to keep neighborhoods safe. One purpose of the sex offender monitoring and alerting program is to provide Lander County citizens with proactive alerts and real-time updates when an offender registers or moves within a specified radius of their address. The service is available at no cost to the public with confidential and unlimited address registrations – home, school, work, gym, day care, park, soccer field, or any address of interest.

“Expanding the OffenderWatch footprint benefits other counties in Nevada and bordering states within our network by providing access to registered sex offender data in Lander County—and vice versa,” said Mike Cormaci, president and co-founder of OffenderWatch. “We look forward to being a long-term partner in public safety for this top Nevada sheriff’s office.”
