Wasylyshyn says the new feature can be a huge benefit to parents.
"It gives them a little
more peace of mind that if their child is getting an email and they don't know
who it is, they can find out," the sheriff said.
If it turns out that
person is a registered sex offender, Sheriff Wasylyshyn encourages you to
"What we're going to find
out is: Did they violate any laws or their probation, their rules that they're
living under as a registered sex offender?" he explained.
He says parents should always
be cautious when someone is communicating with their child, whether the person
is a sex offender or not.
"When there's someone
communicating with your child, you need to know who it is," he said. "It may
not be a registered sex offender because maybe they haven't been caught doing
whatever it is they're doing."
Ohio is one of only eight
states that offers this new sex offender reverse lookup feature.
If you want to stay
informed, sign up online through the local sheriff's office for email
notifications when a sex offender moves to your neighborhood.
