These scheduled visits are in addition to checks conducted randomly by patrol officers.

Of the ninety-one registered offenders, sixty-four have been verified so far. Follow-up visits are being conducted on the remaining twenty-seven. One arrest was made for a probation violation. Anyone with questions or information may contact Sergeant James Ferenbaugh at 740-399-3303.
