Police: Tracking Sex Offenders A Top Priority
Michigan State Police in Kalkaska are trying to bring a sex offender back to Michigan. They say he didn't register his address when he left the state. All sex offenders in the country are required by law to let police know where they live at all times. The sex offender registry mandates that they check in quarterly to confirm an address, or notify police of a move. Police also make surprise visits to sex offenders' addresses once a year to make sure they live there. If they're not there, police must track them down in order to protect the victims and the general public. The Michigan Public Sex Offender Registry is available to everyone online at http://www.mipsor.state.mi.us/ 9&10's Erika Waddell and photojournalist Jeremy Erickson have the story.
