During the month of October 2011 leading up to the Halloween holiday the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office conducted in home verification and residence checks of all registered sex offenders in the parish.
The TPSO sex offender division conducted residence checks with the assistance of the Criminal Investigations Division on approximately 334 registered sex offenders in Terrebonne Parish.
These offenders are those persons currently being monitored by the sex offender division as a result of prior criminal convictions. The information gained from these contacts allows the sex offender database to be updated, allows for the collection of additional intelligence information and confirmation of information already on file.
Also during the month of October fliers containing Halloween Safety Tips were provided by TPSO to the elementary schools within the parish for distribution to the students and their parents.
To access the parish’s sex offender website simply go to the TPSO.net homepage and click on Sex Offenders. Follow the prompts for offender information and e-mail alerts for offenders in your area.
