Locate Sex Offenders
The Grant Parish Sheriff's Office is pleased to provide OffenderWatch® for the citizens of Grant Parish. OffenderWatch® is the nation’s leading registered sex offender management and community notification tool with hundreds of leading agencies in dozens of states utilizing it. Grant Parish’s law enforcement utilizes OffenderWatch® to manage and monitor the whereabouts, conduct and compliance status of the registered offenders in Grant Parish. OffenderWatch® provides the most accurate and timely information available and now this information is available to you!
OffenderWatch® is updated instantaneously throughout the day as offender addresses and other offender information is updated in our office. You may enter any address in the parish and see 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 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 of 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, daycare, park, soccer field, parents or children’s homes – any address of interest to you!
