The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's office will be increasing patrols on Halloween night during trick or treating hours.
Additionally, the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office recently wrapped up a parish wide compliance check of its 170 registered sex offenders, going door to door, making contact with each offender at their residence to ensure they are meeting state requirements.
Residents also are encouraged to check any addresses where they or their family spend time.
The mapping and address features found on the Offenderwatch website pinpoint exactly where an offender lives. Click on the link, then "locate registered sex offenders," and follow the instructions to check neighborhoods and sign up to receive e-mail alerts as soon as a new offender registers with St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office.
Members of the community may report any suspected change of address by an offender or suspicious activity at a residence to our offices at 337-828-1960 or 985-384-1622.
