Maricopa Police Department announced residents may find sex offender notifications in their mailbox later this month.
In a press release issued Friday, MPD said it will re-release these notifications through June following an internal audit of offender registration notifications.
State law requires these notices be sent to residents living within 700 feet of an offender within 48 hours of their registration or change of address. However, MPD said it will send notifications again following the audit. The department stressed the people listed in the notifications are not necessarily new residents or the result of new crimes.
“We urge residents to carefully review this important information and take necessary precautions to ensure personal safety and the well-being of loved ones,” the release read.
