The recently created Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office Sexual Offender Unit is responsible for tracking registered sex offenders who reside within 1,000 feet of a school.

This unit works closely with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office as well as the Regional Planning Department to determine which offenders live within 1,000 feet of a school. When an offender registers an address too close to a school, the Prosecutor’s Office notifies the local law directors that the offender may be residing in violation of the law. The law directors then investigate and file law suits, if necessary, to have these offenders evicted. This unit oversees the implementation of the law and provides legal assistance to the local municipalities in prosecuting these law suits.
