Last week Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway released an audit her office performed on the sex offender registry.

According to her report Miller County has 103 registered sex offenders, and of those 103 offenders, only 5 were listed as non compliant.

We want the Miller County Community to know that of those 5 non-compliant offenders, either charges have been filed by the prosecutor and warrants have been issued, or a current investigation is being conducted.

The Sheriff’s Office has several individuals that monitor the program full time, and work closely with the Missouri State Highway Patrol. This is something we take seriously, and we ask that if the community has concerns that a sex offender is not complying, that they contact the Sheriff’s Office immediately.
