Sheriff urges trick or treaters to know where sex offenders live

AUBURN, Ind. (WANE) DeKalb County Sheriff Don Lauer asking residents to check a sex offender registry database to avoid trick or treating at homes where offenders live.

“We do the best we can in making sure sex offenders live where they tell us, so it is crucial that our citizens visit the website www.icrimewatch.net/Indiana.php website address, to see who the registered sex offenders are and where they are living,” said Sheriff Lauer. “The mapping and address feature found on the website pinpoints exactly where an offender lives.”

According to Sheriff Lauer, citizens should click on the link “Search for Offenders, in your area,” and follow the instructions to check their neighborhood offenders.
