We, at Allen County Children Services, hope every family has a safe and enjoyable summer. Please, never leave a child alone in a vehicle, not even for a minute. Other impediments to the complete, accurate, and timely transfer of sex offender registration sometimes occur, as well. Because offenders tend to move often, the information that appears on this website or elsewhere in the public record cannot be considered as final; and changes to the information can be effected without notice. General Requirements Since July , Ohio statute has required that an adult convicted of [or one having plead guilty to] certain sexually oriented offenses [rape, sexual battery, gross sexual imposition, unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, and other related statutes enumerated in Ohio statute] register with the Sheriff of the County in which the adult intends to live after being released from jail or prison. Curious children may enter an unlocked car and become trapped without the parent or caregiver even knowing. Each year, an average of 38 children die in the United States from a heated-related injury after being trapped in a vehicle. Look before you lock! The temperatures already are warm enough that children can suffer heat-related injuries or death if left inside a vehicle, even on a cloudy day. Registration information, which is provided by the offenders themselves, is verified when offenders fulfill their statutory obligations to register and to verify their current addresses. The sex offender registration that appears on this website, and elsewhere in the public record that is in the control of the Lucas County Sheriff's Office, cannot therefore be certified as completely accurate or current. There are many ways children can become injured during the summer but keeping an eye on them and some common-sense safety steps can help ensure a safe and fun summer.
