NM: Repeat Sex Offender Numbers Low in County

Every Halloween night, between 30 and 50 Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputies spread out all over the county and knock on the doors of registered sex offenders, as a reminder that the county knows where they are and what they’re doing. The Halloween blitz is just one of the tactics the Sheriff’s Department says could be behind the county’s remarkably low sex offender re-offense, or recidivism, rate.

Of more than 1,200 registered offenders that include sex offenders as far back as the 1970s, the sex offender registry unit has identified only seven who have re-committed a sex crime since 2009 – or 0.6 percent who re-offended over that three-year period. Full Article

I really don’t believe the Bernalilo County Sheriffs Department. The bottom line is I’ve truly never heard of ANY Sex Offender committing a crime during Halloween? Furthermore, I’ve heard (sorry) of certain Sheriffs Departments and Police Department’s doing random checks on Registered Sex Offenders? In summary, I plead non contest to an offense 17 years ago and received Summary Probation? Yet, I was regularly checked on and undercover officers came to my door like I was America’s Most Wanted? I even had someone come to my door at 7am on one occasion? Now, I never answer the door and THERE ISN’T A LAW REQUIRING ME TO OPEN THE DOOR FOR ANYONE? NOW, I SIMPLY GO TO THE DOOR AND ASK WHO IT IS? I THANK THEM IN A COURTEOUS MANNER AND NOW ASK THEM TO PROMPTLY LEAVE? I’ve not been arrested since and never prior to this? FUrthermore, the charges have all been expunged dismissed? This might not be the best idea, but enough is enough!
