Sex Offender Registry Is There For Public Safety

James Shaul has been a registered sex offender since 1998.

Michigan State Police keep a public database to help avoid situations like the one on Drummond Island.

Anybody can log onto the Michigan State Police website and see the registry.

It allows the public to see who is living near them and if they may be dangerous.

Police say Shaul has gone back and attacked again but really believe most try to keep their nose clean.
