OffenderWatch® for Linked Agencies:
Offenders are considered “owned” by the county (agency) wherein the offender primarily resides. Therefore, offenders should update their registrations, pay fees, and have data controlled by the county (agency) in which they maintain their principal residence. If it is unclear which residence is the offender’s principal residence, then typical indicators of establishing such a residence such as utility bills, tax returns, driver’s license and other outside indicators will be helpful in making a determination.
In some cases offenders will maintain secondary residences, or maintain a work or volunteer relationship, or attend school in a county differing from the “owning” county. In this case the offender is obliged to check in with the sheriff in the non-owning county. OffenderWatch® users in this case can access the file of the offender by searching the other county’s information. The offenders will be notated in the list of offenders with a red “X” to the left of their record. Users will be allowed to update work, school, volunteer or non primary residential information in that record. They will not, however, be allowed to update other information on the offender. Only the primary agency can make those changes. Any changes will be notified to the owning agency via message in OffenderWatch®.
