SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities in the Savannah area are preparing to deliver binders with photos of the nearly 400 sex offenders living in Chatham County to area public and private schools, libraries and some other public buildings.

WTOC-TV reports that the Chatham County Sheriff's Office Sex Offender Registration and Tracking Unit deputies will start delivering the binders on Wednesday.

The state now requires every sheriff's office to provide printed photographs of every sex offender to all schools, libraries, police
stations and public buildings.

    It would seem that this is just another expence that will go no where there are sites on the internet /state/county/fed/and private listing these men and women...theres alot of money to be made from this hipe and politions use this sort of thing to get votes. Any person could under the current laws be labled a sex offender all it takes is someone to get angry with you /spouse/ student etc. and for anyone that thinks that this keeps you safe well good luck with that....living 2000 feet from a school or park ,church dosent do one thing. This is used as a distraction and to create fear for the gain of those who profit from it

    There is nothing like finding out about some one you know is a sex offender.And you gasp, and say, my Lord I didn't know he was a sex offender.And you know they will not tell you.Now you can see who you got around your family. Of course I know that some of these men are declared sex offenders when in fact they are not. When your girlfriend is 15 and you are 16. They'll put you down as a sex offender,because of the legal age of consent and all. .But they are some sicko people out there that we need to be aware of. I am just sorry that they stick every body into the same category .It needs to be changed. Teenagers a year or two apart shouldn't be labeled a sex offenders.
