When a sex offender registers with the county Sheriff's Office in Indiana, you will be alerted if the offender's address is: Individuals listed on this registry have been convicted of a sexual offense that requires them to meet a number of mandates including annual registration with law enforcement.
This presentation confronts this sensitive issue by exploring how sexual abuse occurs and how to protect children from it.
Helpful tools are given for opening communication with our children about this subject. top This presentation teaches children to say “NO” if Be Some One tries to touch their private areas, to get away from that person as fast as they can and to tell a trusted adult.
This will be done automatically unless the Department of Correction cannot determine when the person committed the offense or whether he or she is required to register as a condition of probation or parole.
If this occurs, the individual will receive a notice at his or her last known address with instructions as to how to contact the Indiana Department of Correction.
Upon request the Indiana Department of Correction will provide neighborhood associations with information concerning sex offenders who reside near the location of the neighborhood association and/or instructional materials concerning the use of the Indiana Sex and Violent Offender Registry.
If you have been classified as violent offender as a result of committing the offense in Indiana prior to July 1, 2007, and you are not currently required to register as a condition of probation or parole, the Indiana Department of Correction has been ordered to remove your name and all information concerning you from the sex and violent offender registry, unless you are convicted of other offenses that allow you to be currently classified as a sex or violent offender.And, if you are in the above category, the Sheriff of your county (in Indianapolis, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department) has been ordered to cease imposing any registration requirements on persons classified as violent offenders as a result of committing the offense prior to July 1, 2007, unless the person has committed other offenses that allow the person to be currently classified as a sex or violent offender.
