Deputies: Some Sex Offender Websites Not Updated

4-27-2014 South Carolina:

The Anderson County Sheriff's Office is letting people know, to be careful where you look for information online about sex offenders in the community.

The Sheriff's Office posted a warning on its facebook page that some sex offender search websites or apps, claiming to offer that information, aren't always accurate or up to date. They say some of the information on other sites is at least two years old.

Deputies say the best way is to go to an official site to search in your community.

In Anderson County, there are about 480 registered sex offenders. The Sheriff's Office updates the registry on a regular basis. Depending on the type of offense, they have to check in from every 90 days to every six months.

Deputies also encourage people to sign up for alerts that can tell you if a sex offender moves in nearby. You can even receive updates about a specific offender. ..Source.. by WSPA Staff
