Sex Offenders in the Community: New Resources Available to Law Enforcement

In partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the IACP is developing several resources to enhance law enforcement’s response to sex offenders in the community. No-cost resources currently available include:

  • Sex Offenders in the Community: Enforcement and Prevention Strategies for Law Enforcement. This publication includes an overview of the sex offender population, examples of prevention and enforcement strategies from agencies around the country, and sample address verification forms.
  • “Framing a Law Enforcement Response: Addressing Community Concerns about Sex Offenders” a pamphlet identifying FAQs posed to law enforcement, with talking points provided to assist agencies in framing a response. The pamphlet also provides important information on identifying grooming behaviors.

To view resources please visit the IACP website at: http://www.theiacp.org/Offender-Reentry. Please contact Christina Horst, Project Coordinator to request hard copies.
