Local Sex Offenders


Athens Police Department has dedicated an officer to register and monitor sex offenders living or working within the city limits of Athens. When a registered sex offender applies to move into the city limits our Sex Offender Registry officer evaluates the request and ensures the perspective residence or place of employment is far enough away from schools and day care centers to meet statutory requirements. Another duty performed by the Sex Offender Registry officer is to ensure letters are mailed to nearby residents notifying that a sex offender is moving into the area.
