    The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office has no legal authority to direct where a sex offender may live. Unless court restrictions exist, sex offenders are constitutionally free to live wherever they choose. Sex offenders are required by law to notify law enforcement of their residence, and law enforcement is authorized to share that information with members of the affected communities. In the case of sexually violent predators, law enforcement must actively notify citizens. In addition to this press release, a notification flyer will be circulated in the community.
