Sex & Violent Offender Registry

Refer to the Sheriff Contact Map to speak to Sex Offender Registry Coordinator within a specific county.

The registry will allow you to choose a county in Indiana and enter any local address in that county. It will then provide a list of all registered county sex offenders living within a one-mile radius within the boundaries of the county selected. If you are looking for information about a particular sex offender registered in that county, the registry can help there as well.

This information is meant to educate you about offenders in a county. It has not been made available for you to take action against any individual. Any action against an offender which is determined to be a violation of law will subject the violator to arrest and prosecution. Please report all information on offenders directly to the office within that county.

A Message from our President

2018 Indiana Sheriffs' Association President Sheriff Tim Troyer of Steuben County

 2018 is going to be an exciting year for the Indiana Sheriffs, the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association and all its members. Sheriffs have become more active not only in their local communities but also at the state and federal levels. Building Communities of Trust, must have the entire package. Sheriffs have recognized what happens in our neighbor’s home can and will affect our home, the home we are sworn to protect. Sheriffs in Indiana, know that in order to have a strong community of trust, the traditional reactionary response must turn to be more proactive. Sheriffs are engaging our citizens today more than ever to work in partnership. Together we are having a positive impact; together we are making a difference.

Indiana Sheriffs continue to be active in the state legislature. Working close with our legislators is an important part of being the Sheriff. This legislative session has our attention on many things. Sentence reform has brought low-level felons back to our local communities. Acute mentally ill are in our jails without proper treatment options more than ever. This has created over-crowding in some jails and the need for counties to seek solutions. The Sheriffs are working close with state officials and legislators to improve upon these difficulties. This effort increases public safety while reducing the burden it is creating on local taxpayers.

Quality and up to date training of our deputies, jail staff, and administrative offices will be a large focus as we move forward in 2018. It must encompass the entire Sheriffs’ office. Court rulings, law changes, and simple procedures with new technology make for a constant need for crucial training. The ISA is a strong resource for Sheriffs and their staff providing training agendas for these current issues. Leadership, operations, investigations, narcotics training, jail training, sex offender registry, proper records keeping/release, employment law, and keeping current with state accounting practices are few of what will be available. This valuable resource ensures a more efficient and effective service by the Sheriff.

2018 will also bring the release of the digital platform for the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association. This will mean for all members the availability to do everything with ISA in a digital format. Memberships, membership renewal, newsletters, and special alerts will become available on your computer, smart phone or tablet. We will still maintain the same quality U.S. Mail outreach and the choice will be yours, whichever way you prefer. It will be a great addition for keeping current on what is happening with your Indiana Sheriff.

As your 2018 President, I am committed to moving the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association and the office of Sheriff forward. It is our mission to serve with excellence and work in partnership with those we serve. Everyone in Indiana deserves to feel safe, and your Sheriff is working hard to accomplish that. I encourage everyone to partner with their Sheriff and the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association with achieving a strong Community of Trust and a safe state for all Hoosiers to enjoy!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Federal Commission on School Safety Releases Comprehensive Resource Guide for Keeping Students, Teachers Safe at School
WASHINGTON—After months of research, visiting successful programs around the nation, and receiving testimony from experts and concerned citizens, today the Federal Commission on School Safety (Commission) released a 177-page report detailing 93 best practices and policy recommendations for improving safety at schools across the country.
Utilizing the information gathered, the Commission report offers a holistic approach to improving school safety, ranging from supporting the social and emotional well-being of students to enhancing physical building security. Acknowledging there can be no one-size-fits-all solution to this complex problem, the final report serves as a resource guide for families, educators, law enforcement officers, health professionals, and elected leaders to use as they consider the best ways to prevent, mitigate, and recover from acts of violence in schools. The recommendations are based on efforts that are already working in states and local communities.
“Each of us has an important role to play in keeping our students safe while at school,” said Chair of the Federal Commission on School Safety and U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. “Through the Commission’s work, it has become even clearer there is no single policy that will make our schools safer. What will work for schools in Montana will be different than what will work for schools in Manhattan. With that in mind, this report provides a wide-ranging menu of best practices and resources that all state, community, and school leaders should consider while developing school safety plans and procedures that will work for their students and teachers.”
Acting Attorney General Matthew G. Whitaker said, "The Trump administration is taking action to prevent and deter violence in our schools. The Department of Justice is already directing funding to hire school resource officers, improving our background check systems, and prosecuting violent offenders at record levels. Today's report provides a substantive blueprint for this Administration's next steps to protect our young people. The Department of Justice will continue to support first responders and provide training for law enforcement officers and school personnel. I want to thank all of my fellow commissioners for their hard work on this report and thank the President for making our kids a priority."
U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar added, “Improving Americans’ mental health to help make our schools, communities, and families safer and healthier is an urgent challenge and a priority for the Trump Administration. We know that rates of mental illness continue to be of great concern, and the Commission’s findings show an urgent need to identify youth at risk for mental illness and connect them with needed treatment and services. Making these connections to treatment within schools can be an important step toward improved mental health for our children and increased safety in our schools.”
Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen said, “I am proud of the work of the Federal Commission on School Safety, which today offers a bold vision of secure and violence-free schools. This report provides actionable recommendations for communities, schools, and students to protect themselves and prevent acts of violence. The Department of Homeland Security is committed to the security of all Americans and will continue to work with our partners toward ending school violence.”
COMMISSION BACKGROUND
In the wake of the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February, President Donald J. Trump established the Commission and tasked its members with studying and recommending ways to make our nation’s schools more secure.
Over the nine months that followed, the Commissioners, including U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker (who succeeded former Attorney General Jeff Sessions as a Commissioner), Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar, and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, held more than a dozen meetings, field visits, and listening sessions.
Commission meetings provided a forum for presentations from subject matter experts, educators, law enforcement officials, and individuals affected by school violence. Field visits involved travel to schools to learn first-hand about current best practices in school safety. Listening sessions occurred in regions across the country and provided opportunities for the public to offer recommendations to the Commission. In total, the Commissioners heard from dozens of experts from nearly 40 states and reviewed more than 1,500 comments from the public via safety@ed.gov.
