WI: Sheriff – Why sex offenders live in our communities

Throughout the years I have written articles pertaining to many topics that affect the overall safety of our communities. From theft and fraud prevention to animal bites and cold weather preparation, there is never a shortage of issues in which helpful information can be shared.

This week I would like to cover some information regarding sex offenders and the guidelines that govern their re-integration into our communities. Full Article

This is a very well written editorial. He goes where few LE’s have gone, actually is not threatening, accusing or stirring up public hatred like the sheriff’s in California. He may check his statistics though…

Pretty fair article coming from a Sheriff.

He said it exactly how it is (minus the recidivism %). I wished more people would realize this. Very good article.

Except he left out…Currently, most sex offenses are committed by someone NOT listed on a public registry.

I emailed the sheriff and thanked him for a well written article and he appears to be gracious officer of the law. This is part of his response: ” It is very easy for a law enforcement officer to yield to the concerns of a community, however we must look at things from all perspectives and serve as the educator and not the agitator.”
He also wrote that “Pride is concerned with who is right. Humility is concerned with what is right”
Perhaps he is a man of character…

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
