The Washington County Sheriff's Department went on-line with its own Web site this week.
Sheriff Bobby Haddock says it offers several links which will help residents combat identity theft, as well as giving updates on investigations.
Sheriff Haddock says most of the interest involves tracking convicted sexual offenders who may have registered to live in the county.
It even gives a computerized map with distances on where they live from a homeowner.
