The Tioga County Sheriff’s office has a new sex offender registration and public notification website up and running.

The website is called OffenderWatch and links Tioga County to a nationwide network of over 5,000 law enforcement agencies.

The site allows citizens to search for potentially dangerous sex offenders and predators that may near their homes, places of work, schools, churches and day care centers.

Citizens can also register an address to be monitored by the Sheriff, who will send them an email alerting them if an offender or predator registers an address within the designated radius of their address.

The site can be accessed through the Tioga County Sheriff’s Office sex offender search page at www.sheriffalerts.com/ny/tioga.
