The Hempstead County Sheriff’s Office has instituted a new software program called Offender Watch. Offender Watch is the nation’s leading registered sex offender management and community notification tool with hundreds of leading agencies in dozens of states utilizing it. Currently HempsteadCounty has 51 registered sex offenders residing in the County. Hempstead County Sheriff’s Office will utilize Offender Watch to manage and monitor the whereabouts, conduct compliance status of the registered offenders in HempsteadCounty. Offender Watch provides the most accurate and timely information available and now this information is available to the citizens of HempsteadCounty. Offender Watch is updated instantaneously throughout the day as offender addresses and other information is updated in our office. Citizens may enter any address in the county and see the real – time information on the publishable offenders within the specified radius of the address you enter. Offenders move frequently, so instead of having to check the maps on a weekly basis, the best way to stay informed is to take advantage of our free email alert system. You may confidentially register as many addresses in the county as you wish, and we will continually monitor the addresses and send you an email alert if a new offender registers an address within one mile of any address you register. There is no cost for this service and no limit to the addresses you can register-your email address and physical address are all confidential. Tell your friends and neighbors and be sure to register your home, school, work, gym, daycare, park, soccer fields, and ball field’s, parents or children’s homes-any address of interest to you. The Hempstead County Sheriff’s Office maintains this Offender Watch Portal as a community service. You can access the Hempstead County Offender Watch Page by typing Offender Watch Program click on the state of Arkansas and choose HempsteadCounty to view the Offenders in HempsteadCounty. Be sure to visit the Safety Tips page and review the information we have provided under the community awareness fliers or the other links. You may print the fliers for your use to distribute to your club, school, library or group. Once again this is a free service to the citizens of HempsteadCounty provided by Sheriff James Singleton and the Hempstead County Sheriff’s Office. If you have any questions about our community awareness program, Please call 870-777-6727 or email Deputy Marla Barnhill @ firstname.lastname@example.org or Sheriff Singleton @ email@example.com .
