Missouri State Highway Patrol announced it had contracted with Offender Watch, a monitoring program that gives residents real-time updates on sex offenders in their communities. The network will allow every sheriff's office in the state, participating police departments and the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services to use the technology to share records on sex offenders.

Law enforcement officials in the state of Missouri don't know the whereabouts of more than 1, registered sex offenders -- including almost offenders that would be classified as the most dangerous -- a new report from State Auditor Nicole Galloway finds. State law requires those convicted or found guilty of sexual offenses to register their name, address and other information with the chief local law enforcement official, who is most often the sheriff. That information is made public through a database and website maintained by the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Offenders must verify the information at regular intervals and notify the appropriate law enforcement officials if they move.
