Sheriff Unites with Coalition
On July 26, 2005, before about 100 Fayette County citizens, the Kentucky Coalition Against Sexual Assaults
Task Force met at the downtown public library on Main Street to discuss ways of strengthening the state's
laws when it comes to dealing with convicted sex offenders.
Fayette County Sex Offenders Map
The rise of sexual assaults is an increasing concern not only among Central Kentuckians, but by citizens
across the country. Currently Fayette County has 237 sex offenders living within its boundaries. Those sex
offenders must register with the Kentucky Sex Offender Registry. The Office of the Fayette County Sheriff has
the states only Megan's Law Compliance Deputy, Jim Sanders, who spends many hours checking on the whereabouts
of each registered sex offender in Fayette County. Deputy Sanders also works very closely with other law
enforcement agencies in Central Kentucky ensuring that there is a line of communications established when a
sex offender may be in the area that has not officially registered.
The Task Force will be hosting several public meetings across Kentucky.
