WKRG News 5 investigates: sex offenders living near MCPSS WiFi bus locations


MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — After Mobile County Public Schools posted the locations of WiFi buses helping students connect to classes, one parent raised concerns to WKRG News 5 about sex offenders living near these spots.

Out of the 20 locations listed by MCPSS, 19 had addresses provided. WKRG News 5 searched the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Sex Offender Registry in a one-mile radius around each location provided by the district.

In a Facebook post, Mobile County Public Schools tells parents, “If you are waiting for a hotspot, you can access wifi delivered by our buses deployed around the county in the meantime.”

Currently there is no date set for when all WiFi hot spots will be delivered to students.

We reached out to the district asking if there is security. A spokesperson said the district asked local law enforcement and its resource officers to patrol the areas where the buses are parked.
