  • The Summit County Sheriff's Office, the Summit County Adult Probation Department and the Ohio Parole Authority completed an address verification project on Thursday for registered sex offenders residing in Summit County.
    More than 340 residences were verified during the two-day operation and the search also identified 10 sex offenders who had moved and failed to report their change of address or whose residence information required further investigation.
    The sheriff's office works on a continual basis to locate and validate the residency of the 1,070 registered sex offenders living in Summit County and asks the public to provide assistance by contacting the department's Electronic Sex Offender Registration and Notification (ESORN) unit or visiting www.co.summit.oh.us/sheriff/index.htm and clicking on the link for the unit's confidential tip line.
