Sex Offender


Sheriff Michael Shepherd and the Hancock County Sheriff's Department offer Offender Watch to track registered sex offenders.


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 continuously monitor the addresses and send you an email alert if a new offender registers an address within the specified radius of any address you register.


There is no cost  for this service and no limit to the number addresses you can register - your email address and physical addresses are all confidential. 


Tell your friends and neighbors and be sure to register your home, school, work, gym, day care, park, soccer field, parents or children's homes - any address of interest to you!


Please visit  to register today.
