BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office recently received national
recognition for excellence in overseeing the county’s 365 sex offenders. Sheriff Huey Hoss Mack and the office were recognized this week for outstanding sex offender compliance and best practices using the software management tool OffenderWatch.
BCSO uses OffenderWatch to keep track of registered sex offenders, often using the system to aid in investigations and proactively improve public safety. Of the more than 3,000 agencies and 14,000 users in the OffenderWatch network, the company selected BCSO to receive the award. The sheriff accepted the award during a ceremony in late May. Sheriff Mack stated the Offender Compliance Unit of the Sheriff’s Office has done an outstanding job of registering and monitoring offenders in the area.
“Sergeant Susan Gross and her team go above and beyond in their service to protect our community
from these offenders”, said Sheriff Mack.
“Sheriff Mack and the entire sheriff’s office go above and beyond what is required in statute to
collect comprehensive data on each and every offender in their jurisdiction,” said Mike Cormaci, president of OffenderWatch.
The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for managing, tracking and verifying registered sex offenders in the county.
