ND: North Dakota works to track registered sex offenders

[inforum.com – 9/2/18]

Keeping track track of sex offenders in North Dakota requires technology and the teamwork of law enforcement and communities across the state.

There are among nearly 1,900 sex offenders in the state, according to Liz Brocker, a spokeswoman for the North Dakota Attorney General’s Office.

A website for the Attorney General’s Office tracks the locations of sex offenders in the state, based on their residence or place of employment. Staff with the office work extensively to keep the website up to date with extensive information on offenders, Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem said.

Meanwhile, law enforcement in communities across the state work to register offenders, check up on them and make sure they are compliant with state law. The compliance rate for registration is almost 98 percent, Brocker said.

“I think we have one of the best sex offender websites in the country,” Stenehjem said, adding local communities, do a good job of keeping track of sex offenders.

Does tracking those on the “registry” reduce recidivism? What was that rate before Megan’s law started? Once long ago. I committed a sex crime. I learned my lesson by being arrested, put in a horrible jail away from my wife & children & by my shame & regret. What a huge waste of money it would be to track me now lol. I work, support & enjoy my family, tend to my home, and I spend time with friends, new & old. Bring it on.

“”People are entitled to know where they are living,” Stenehjem said of sex offenders”

It’s a pervasive myth that the public reserves the right to know where sex offenders live and it’s patently false.

It’s not a woman’s “right” to keep her children safe at the expense of circumventing the safety, health and welfare of a private citizen just so said mother can gain a false sense of relief and fleeting psychological comfort.

Megan’s law: Weaponized fear, ignorance, arrogance and hatred by allowing the local police to take false credit for protecting children since 1996.
